Finally a solution to the bobbin issue that is ...simple...easy...available... low cost...whoohoo!!

I am going to to do this to all my threads and bobbins...

That is slick.  I would like to try using that with those ponytail holders that you can get at the Dollar Tree, instead of rubber bands.

KISS. Beyond most of us.

I use a donut shaped ring for the everyday ones, and for colors like that, I just put the bobbin on the peg before the spool of thread. :) No rubber banding necessary.

Clever idea!  I don't keep bobbins with every spool of thread, so this will be practical for me to use for my frequently used colors of thread.

Well now.  That's just cool!  I use the silicone rings for long-term storage, but this would be good for traveling or going to retreats. Thanks for posting!
