Just thought I'd ask if anyone has any favorite, creative uses for bits of leftover thread on bobbins after a project is done.  :-)

if enough of them are long enough and the thread thick enough I like to make macrame bracelets out of them.

I'm planning to use them for couching gimp/cordonnet threads for my needle lace.

I make bookmarks.  Depending on how much thread is left depends on the size of the bookmark or bookmarks.  My brother is a teacher so they do not go to waste.

I like doing English paper piecing (quilting) too and use this thread mostly for basting but I would piece with it too if it were the correct color.  Usually, it is not though.

Put the stripped thread in a jar or bag,. and use them for stuffing a pin cushion.  You need a lot, but you would be surprised at how quickly the bag/jar fills, - if you make a lot of lace!!!!!!

 Los sobrantes los en rollo en paleta de paico y lo uso en el bordado a mano o fribolite. No desperdicio ningún hilo.
