Safe needle bar

For lovers of needlework, one of the indispensable accessories for sewing is the needle bed. It should be comfortable and always be at hand. If there are children or animals in the house, a safety problem arises when using a needle bed. Sticking needles can injure curious households or cause them other harm. I propose to make a needle bed, safe for all and convenient to use. To do this, we will install it in a resealable container. And for beauty, we stylize it under the cactus.

For this we need:
 Safe needle bed
  • food container, in this case, cylindrical,
  • fabric, synthetic winterizer, button on the leg,
  • threads, needles, scissors,
  • pencil , ruler, compass,
  • notebook in a cage or paper.
Working methods. 1. We take a container and measure the diameter of its lower part. The diameter of this container is 11.4 cm, respectively, the radius is 2 times smaller and equal to 5.7 cm. We use the measurement to build a circle.With the help of a circular draw a circle on paper. We cut a circle with scissors, which we need to cut out the bottom of the needle bed.  Safe needle bed
If there is no compass, you can circle the bottom of the container with a pencil on paper. When using the pattern, take into account the thickness of the container walls. 2. We put a circle on the fabric, cut the needles and cut out, adding an allowance of 3-5 mm. Since the needle imitates the cactus, the color of the fabric is green. In the future we will use the zigzag seam, the allowance directly depends on the height of the seam. If elastic stretch fabric is used, then measurements can be approximate. And if the fabric is dense and inextensible, all measurements must be extremely accurate.  Safe needlebed  Safe needle bed 3. Our needle bed will have 6 sectors that will imitate the surface of the cactus. For the pattern we need to calculate the width of the sector and its height. The width is calculated by the formula: pi (3.14) times the radius and divided by 3. 3.14 x 5.7 cm: 3 = 5.97 cm, rounded up to 6 cm. If there is no calculator at hand,This can be added to the radius of a few millimeters to get the width of the sector. The height is taken from personal preferences, but taking into account whether you want the bottom of the cactus to fit snugly against the walls of the container. In this case, the junction height is taken 1, 5 cm. The bend length was calculated according to the formula: the desired height plus radius. 2.5 cm + 5.7 cm = 8.2 cm. We draw a pattern on paper. It turns out a triangle, the two sides of which are slightly convex.

11 . Cut out the workpiece along the drawn contour. In this case, we got a small circle.
