- Foam Core board
- Exacto Knife
- Small piece of cardboard to put underneath to protect your table or cutting surface
I'm going to use this bobbin as a guide on how mine should look.
|Bulky Yarn Bobbins|
First draw a rectangle on the foam core board that is 5 inches long and 3 inches wide.
Then use your straight edge to help you draw this shape. You can use a protractor for the rounded edges. I just drew mine freehand.
Place the foam core board on top of a piece of cardboard to protect your cutting surface.
Use straight edge and an Exacto knife to score the foam core board then go back over again with the Exacto knife until the part is cut loose. For curved areas you will probably just have to use the Exacto knife, unless you have a protractor.
If you are having trouble cutting a piece off, try turning over and cutting on the lines that are showing to help you remove the piece.
The last step is to cover the bobbin in tape. This will make the edges smoother and make the thinner parts of the bobbin stronger.
Once you have wound your bobbin, cut it loose from the skein and then start using it.
It works well. Even when it's hanging it doesn't unwind.
