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!

  9. can you tell me what you used for the stuffing inside the pillow,

  10. I used just regular stuffing that I bought at Joann's

  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!

  12. I wish I knew how to post the pic I just took of my amorphous pointy iPad pillow. Clearly I did something wrong. Starting again!

  13. Love the little dress form in the picture, did u make that too?

  14. You could stuff it with corn cob pellets, freeze the pillow, and Tada' you have an ipadchillo!

  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?

    1. Sorry I never replied to this.. looks like it is off by 3 inches

  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

    1. Thank you for the update. Great Idea and possible I made an error with my measurements

  17. Nice! Thank you for the tutorial! I made one for my own ;-)

Neck Tie Upcycled to Cuff

I found a large stash of Neck ties at an Estate Sale this past weekend and I had to buy them since I had the perfect idea for an upcycle project. They were mostly from a long since closed store here in Buffalo,NY and I felt the need to preserve them as well as the tags. I started by washing them on gentle and removing them immediately and laying flat to dry. They came out a little disfigured but nothing that a little ironing wouldn't fix. Next I took a seam ripper and opened up the back to take out the interfacing. I did this for two reasons, it was discolored and had a little odor and it would be easier to sew without this bulk.  I next cut the tie into a piece 10" long and hemmed the edge. Then I sewed two pieces of velcro to each side to make my cuff. The last step was to sew on a few antique buttons and beads and my cuff was done. Wow! Looking at this I can't believe how it turned out!.But wait... I made a few more! Love this one.. Antique Maple leave button and golden bead! …

T-shirt Upcycle to Cardigan

I have had this large long sleeved t-shirt for about a year. I paid $2.99 for it at the Salvation Army and appeared to be new. I had thought about embellishing it with a flower or two but could not come up with a original or cute idea so I decided to make a cardigan out of it. So lets get started and upcycle another piece of clothing! First I laid the shirt out and measured from under arm to under arm to find the exact center.
Once I found the center, I cut right up the middle. This step always makes me nervous ever since I was a child and tried to cut a collar on a coat to make it narrower. It was a disaster but I try not to think about it that much and just cut. Once it was cut, I decided to use the hem from another t-shirt that I had cut up for another project.  I cut two pieces of the hem of the t- shirt long enough to cover the edge of the cardigan and wrap around the top and bottom edge. I folded over the edge and pinned Then I pinned it to one side of the cardigan. Making sure to f…
