The other day I needed a "tripod" for my cell phone camera to use for an online quilting class, but I was away from home.  I looked around the AirBnB where I was staying to see what I might use, and came up with this quick and easy holder.  Watch the YouTube video to see how to make it in just a couple of minutes. I used a can of soup, but you could use anything heavy you happen to have on hand -- rocks? rice?

The still photos show it sitting next to the sewing machine and the view to the foot.
