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.
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!
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.
- Order Turnabout Patchwork on Amazon
- Order Turnabout Patchwork directly from Martingale
