I don't know about you girls, but me being a thrifty Yorkshire woman, I just hate waste of any kind. Before anything goes in the bin or for recycling it's scrutinised to the eighth degree, to see what it can be used for or made into!
So being busy machine embroidering a piece of felt, I usually use white embroidery bobbin thread in the lower bobbin, as you get twice as much on the reel as ordinary thread. Being thrifty, when the reel needs refilling, I like to use up any odds and ends of coloured thread left on bobbins from other sewing projects. This is where the happy accident comes in. This is the wrong side of my work! It would normally be completely white.
It's shame it won't be seen when the bags finished.
Looks like there's been another accident here..... the mess I make when I'm working!!!!!!!!!!
