If you wrap several bobbins of the same color, you could slip them into the extra fingers and use a paper clip to hold them in. Where the glove and the bobbins are clear, I can see what color the thread is. The ring of glove is not so tight I can't get it off easily, like the rubber band I had tried before. For bobbins with less thread on them, you could wrap the ring a couple of times.
I use the thumb and first fingertips from the gloves for pulling my needles through fabric when quilting or sewing thick fabrics. Now have a use for the little finger as well. Whenever we go to the doctor's office, we pick up a pair or two. The nurses are glad to give them to me. In the long run, we sure pay for them.

I noticed in your picture that your bobbins have more than one color thread wound on them. This is not a good idea! Bobbins are cheap, and each one should have only one color and type of thread on them.
If you are sewing with one color and it comes to an end, the second bobbin thread can easily get tangled in the bobbin case or brought up and get caught around the needle, either of which can cause damage to the bobbin mechanism or the needle bar. At the least you might have a mess to untangle, at the most a huge bill if the machine gets out of time or you break something.
Food for thought
To keep extra bobbin threads from unraveling, place a fat fuzzy ponytail holder around the bobbin.
