[Tips Discussion] Floss Bobbin Labels

[Copy link]

I make my own bobbin labels when I'm doing large charts like HAED.
I print the symbols as well as the thread numbers at an enlarged size, then cut them up
and sticky tape them to the bobbins. This saves a lot of cross checking from chart symbols
to threads when stitching. Its fiddly and a bit tedious to set up but makes the stitching
process a little more relaxing.
And they are easier to read than those tiny DMC sticker labels or hand written on the bobbin.

Fabulous idea. I'm getting ready to start a large project, and this idea will help, especially since I just bought 1000 plastic bobbins and 5000 return address labels which I think I can use to make the labels and they are adhesive. I also have an empty bobbin box. Putting everything in there would be eisier than using a thread card, I think, but certainly tidier!!

Personally I stuck directly on bobinki, but if someone has difficulty reading the small digits that this idea is good criminality. Pleasant scrapbooks!

(PL: Osobiscie naklejam bezposrednio na bobinki, ale jesli ktos ma trudnosci z odczytaniem za małych cyferek to ten pomysł jest barzdo dobry. Przyjemnego wyklejania!)

What software did you use?

I open the pdf with photoshop and cut/ paste and enlarge. If you dont have a program that can do pdf to jpg to alter it you can take a 'print screen' of your pdf and paste it to any paint type program for alteration. And if your files are already jpg its even easier

I just pulled the threads out and have them wound on bobbins with the floss number on.  I can cross check with the chart.   If you put symbols on you have to scrap the bobbins for the next project, which I think is a waste.

I don’t scrap the bobbin, just cut off the label and redo for next project.  Post time 2018-10-14 19:08

I do this as well. I print an extra copy of the floss sheet and enlarge with my copy machine. It makes it so much easier to just search my box for the symbol!

This is such a great idea. As you say, a little time consuming to begin with, but so worth it for designs using lots of thread colours.

update: I use a Sharpie to write on the Bobbin itself, but make sure the ink is really dry before you touch it =)

Goed idee maar toch veel werk, schrijf met permanent pen op de bobins de kleur en hou de lijst op papier erbij

great idea. Might take a bit longer to set up in the beginning but will make more stitching time later
