For the money conscious sewing freaks among us :)
Unable to afford the thread organizers at my local store, i instead opted for a $0.99 pack of bamboo skewers and some mismatched/unused buttons.
I made a small sack to store them in after out of fused plastic bags.

Hope someone out there finds this useful!

  • How to make a thread holder. Thread Organizer Sticks - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your materials.

    Be sure to check your buttons, they should be wider than the center of your spools, as they'll be acting as stoppers at the bottom of the sticks.

    Step 2

    Apply the hot glue gingerly around the sharp end of the skewer.

    The flat end is much too wide to fit into your average button hole, and this is safer for grabbing the finished product

    Step 3

    Push one of your buttons onto the stick while the glue is still hot.

    Any button hole will due if you chose a large enough button.

    Let rest for five minutes before handling.

    <b>OPTIONAL</B> If desired for safety and ease of storage, add a glob of hot glue to cover the point of the skewer.

  • Step 5

    Allow to sit for 15 minutes before threading the spools into place.

    Cheers, and of you have any questions feel free to ask :)
