This midlands style bobbin will look great on your lacing pillow. I have made this bobbin on my lathe from Hard Maple for durability and good looks. I have decorated it with thread wrappings to enhance the appearance. Each thread is applied individually to create the pattern, then a clear epoxy coating is applied to protect the threads from wear and dirt. As far as I know, no one else decorates their bobbins using this method. The rest of the bobbin is protected with a clear finish which will not discolor the thread.
The bobbin is about 4“ (100mm) long and is slightly less than 3/8“ (9.5 mm) in maximum diameter. The spangles are faceted glass beads, and are color coordinated with the threads in the decoration. The bobbin you see is the one you will get.
If you have a color combination you would like, please contact me to arrange custom colors for you. I can be contacted by messaging me through Etsy.
