Most people say that having a stitching pony is really helpful; like having an extra pair of hands. But at over $100 for a decent one they are not always high on people's priority list.
Well I took a look at some designs online and decided I could make one of my own. It just took a couple of hours and cost me just the price of a few screws as I already had some scrap wood and a lazy susan which I had found at a dump.
I didn't have a long bolt and wing nut to lock it down but a couple of robust rubber bands seem to be up to the job. The magnets are a luxury feature and are used to hold the needles if I need to free up my hands. The suede was from an old pair of gloves.
