Tablet stand tutorial made with the leg of a pair of jeans

Make this tablet stand in 15 minutes.

I have made a few iPad beanbags over the years but this one has been so far the easiest one to make.

How to make an iPad beanbag

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.

Or use plain cotton fabric


  • leg of a pair of jeans (8 to 10 inches wide)
  • self covered button
  • stuffing
  • a bag of lentils or rice or some stone (optional)
  • a small piece of cardboard (optional)


Download the Denim iPad beanbag pattern (pdf). Using this base is optional.

Print and trace the pattern on a piece of cardboard.

It is recommended that you add some weight to the bag so it sits better. Rice, lentils, wheat, and the like should work well.

If you make this beanbag, share a picture on my Flickr group. I’d love to see it.
