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!



  1. Wow what a cute idea! I love it! My husband's birthday is coming up, maybe I'll try making this for his ipad. Love it!

  2. I love this!! I will have to make one for my hubby <3 Thanks so much for linking up ANOTHER FABULOUS project. I'm so glad I follow you ;)
    "Kiss Me I'm Irish" linky party is open!

  3. What a genius idea and I am in love with that fabric! Pretty and practical. My favorite combo.

  4. Thank you so much for this pattern. I've been looking for a perfect way to hold my iPad in bed and tonight I have just made this fantastic pillow.

  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! …

Ultra Mini Dress Form

My obsession with mannequins continued this week when I remembered a free pattern for a tiny dress form pin cushion that I saw back in January.
 It's a two page download at with a video that takes you thru step by step of the process. I wanted to make a few of these for my craft room but thought they would also look lovely adorned with my recycled jewelry. So I started by selecting a few fabrics in colors that I love. Blues and greens are my favorite and make me feel like spring is not far away. After cutting and sewing the simple patterns and easy instructions (via video), I had these three stunning ladies in my craft room. They require very little fabric and can be mounted on candle sticks or spools. I made the long green dress form about 4" longer than the pattern since I wanted a bit of height and enough space to hang pedants. I added glass drawer knobs and beads for the neck inserts. I then added a few necklaces. I chose just a few since the forms are…
