Sheath a tracing-wheel blade

Here's a tip for sewers who want to prevent the spikes of their tracing wheel from inadvertently poking something unintended while in storage. I put my wheel into a toothbrush holder (usually available where travel-size products are sold in drug stores) so that it doesn't get caught on fabrics or other items in the sewing box. This also eliminates the possibility of it poking my hand when I'm searching for another sewing notion.
