Ipad Pillow Stand


I like to watch tutorials on my Ipad and although I have a cover that converts to a stand, it isn't always the best solution for viewing. So I decided to make one of my own inspired by these Iphone stands I found on Etsy.
They are sold by dognamedbanjo and are really unique and lovely.
So I thought I could make one similar to it and here is how i did it.
First I started with a 1 yard of a fabric in my two favorite colors.
Then I cut the following pieces
1 Pc 13" x 13"
1 pc 29 x 13"
2 Triangle pieces 13" x 13" x 13"
Next I sewed the top square to the two triangles. This is will be the sides and the base.
Next I took the large rectangular piece and sewed it to the bottom of the square.
Now I don't have photos of the last few steps since once it start forming a pillow it is difficult to photograph, but the process is not that difficult.
Next I sewed each side of the the rectangle to one side of the triangle on both sides.
Then repeated the same process on the other side
Lastly leaving open the bottom to stuff.
This is what is looked like before stuffing.
Then I stuffed it, not too full since I wanted my Ipad to sit in the pillow and not on it.
I think it looks great and perfect for viewing some of my favorite tutorials.

 Now I can view it from several different places in my craft room.


And it was Super easy to make!

Enjoy!

  11. Hi Janet - I'm nearly done making my own pillow, but I can't figure out how you finished yours? Any suggestions on closing it after stuffing? Thanks for the idea & post!

  15. the measurements are off. I am in the middle of making mine and when matching up the long sides of the rectangles with the triangles, there is an excess of 3 and 1/2 inches! Did you have the same issue?

  16. I added a zipper to one triangle so I can adjust the filling ... I also ended up with extra 3 inches... I put that at the top of the triangle then sewed up to each point on the top of the triangle then from that point sewed up to the fold. I then stuffed it an sewed across that to make that part the tablet sits on in the different fabric picture
