Bobbins from Sam Samson
I was delighted to stubble across these recycled bobbins from Sam Samson. You can attach the bobbins anywhere where you have some thing hanging down with a weight or handle on it. I’m tempted to get some to use a light switch pulls or on window blinds. They don’t have to serve a purpose though and they could be simply used as decoration. These spinning bobbins come on jute rope with 100gm jute twine and are priced at £6.50. If you want something a little more intricate there are a number of choices available on the Sam Samson website.
Who would have thought that you could turn a bobbin into a timer? These lovely timers are made from recycled bobbins with the timing glasses inside. You can choose from a 5 minute timer, a 10 minute timer or an hour timer. They obviously serve a practical purpose, but I think they are also very decorative. Prices start from £12.50 for a 5 minute timer.
