Tablet stands: 4 free tutorials

I have done 4 iPad stands or bean bags so far:  one using the leg of a pair of jeans, one with patchwork, a simple one using some embellishments and another one with hand painted fabric.

How to make an iPad beanbag out of the leg of a pair of jeans

Make this stand using the leg of a pair of jeans and a pretty button or other embellishment. Watch  this short 4 minute video to learn how to make it.

Patchwork iPad stand

Tablet stand

This tablet stand uses 5 inch charm squares. Useful when you have fabric scraps from other projects. Make an iPad stand to match your quilt!

iPad beanbag

This is an even simpler beanbag. It uses just a piece of fabric folded in half and stuffed with batting or polyfill. I added a little flower at the back just for fun.

For this stand the fabric has been hand painted with Inktense blocks and a black Sharpie. Derwent Inktense blocks are supposed to be colourfast but I won’t wash the stand just in case.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
