It's always useful to have some pins and needles. But those things loves to jump around and hide in dark and dusty places.
To prevent that, here is a quick instructable to make a basic sewing box.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Print the Parts !
You will need to 3D print two parts : top and bottom.
I have printed with no support or brim, at 0.2mm. If you have like me a crappy printer, you may want to put needles in holes will it's printing. This way, they won't collapse !
I also joined Solidworks Parts, if you want to make some changes (send me back your files, I'll will upload them here !).
After finishing the box, it seems a bit to little (not tall enough for tall needles). So change that if you want.
Step 2: Assemble the Bottom
Once everything is printed, you'll have to make a small cushion to pick the needles into.
For that, I used hard foam found in package, which I think is better than soft foam.
Cut the foam to match the box dimension, and then cover it with a felt piece.
Once the cushion is done, put it in the box and sew it thanks to the side holes.
Step 3: Assemble the Top
Let's do the top now !
This is pretty straight forward : cut a piece of felt that match the box, and then sew it thanks to the side holes !
Step 4: Final Assembly
Finally, just put the two parts together and fix them with two pins and a bit of glue !
That's it ! Have fun !
