Hi everyone! You know I just love taking the most mundane things and turning them into something fun and useful. This suction cup sponge holder is the perfect example.
I found this in a thrift store in the bottom of a junk basket in the kitchen section for one dollar!
Come and see the easy transformation…
This is where I usually use the suction cup holder. It's in my kitchen sink for the scrubby pad. I love for this!!
Two suction cups keep it in place.
However, I do sew in the car from time to time, so this is going to be my new sewing caddy when I'm hand sewing my hexagons!!
The first step is the pin cushion. You could just squeeze in one of your own pin cushions in the basket, but I had this one from another tutorial.
It's a pillow style with a band in the back that had elastic through it.
Now it has a ribbon to go around the basket.
Just tie it around the entire edge of the sponge holder.
Adjust to your type of basket.
I also added folding scissors to the basket. You can buy these in any sewing or craft store or even online.
Now fill it with your hand sewing projects, fabric, hexagons and spools of thread.
The best part of the sponge holder is the suction cup feature.
Handy sewing caddy while riding in the car! It's up and out of the way. Helps to keeps the spools of thread and accessories from rolling all over the floor or down the seat!!
It suction cups right to your car window (obviously on the passenger side, Lol)
The wire basket style feature also serves as a thread dispenser.
Keep the spools in the basket and just pull out as much as you need.
The folded scissors are right there when you need them to cut the thread.
Just unfold, cut…
then fold them back up when not using them…just to be safe.
Whether in the car or
sitting next to you in the house in your favorite chair, this little sewing caddy is perfect for any hand sewing project!
Don't forget my soap dish post from a few a weeks ago. Great for your sewing machine or computer…click HERE to see that.
Five years ago, I came up with this sewing caddy when we drove to Disney World. Lots of sewing on that trip!
It's made from a window cup holder and a recycled vegetable can.

This is another cup holder I found in the automotive section.

This is a fortune I shared from one of those holder post…perfect for me!!
I hope you can find beauty in ordinary things too!!
As a side note…these cup holders would be great for kids in the back seat for crayons, paper and little toys to keep them busy. They can each have their own on their own window!!
