This simple, yet totally brilliant solution has changed our lives, or at least our thread stash.
It's one of those things that you wonder, "why didn't I think of this sooner".
I know this idea is out there. In fact, I happened to see it on Pinterest yesterday.
Though I suspect that this lovely lady, whom I discovered it from, was one of the first. She just seems innovative enough to come up with this all on her own.
As "friendship bracelet love" is still going strong around these parts we needed this simple solution to what had become quite a problem.
Anyone who has worked at all with embroidery floss knows that its favorite thing to do other than look beautiful is to tie itself into teeny-tiny knots and become a mass of colorful frustration.
So here's what you need:
---One pile of floss that no one can pull a single solitary thread from because they are knotted so incredibly and would require a magnifying glass and a good, or rather, great light to untangle.
---Clothespins. As many as you have the floss and patience for. Hopefully, most of you would do this before you have said "mess of floss" and it would be a much calmer experience.
We live on the edge here most of the time and wanted our floss to be good and knotted before I found this solution.
---Time to wind them up or un-knot them as the case may be.
That is all.
You end up with this.
Isn't it cute?
I love these so much that I'm now wondering what else I can wrap around clothespins. There has to be something...suggestions?
Hope your Wednesday is treating you well and not tying you into little intricate knots.
If so, try a clothespin you never know what might happen.
