iPhone Stand

On my Facebook page yesterday, I posted a picture teaser as to what I was working on for today.  Here is the finished iPhone holder/stand!

I had pinned on Pinterest the link to this tutorial by Factotum of Arts.  As I sew, I will often catch up on shows or watch old tv series on Netflix on my phone.  I normally just prop up my phone next to my machine but then the machine would vibrate and then, well, you can see where I am going with this.  

This tutorial was SO easy but I do realize that I had everything on hand which helped. The peacock fabric I purchased at Joann Fabrics. It is in their premium quality quilting cotton section.  A little more expensive but it was just too pretty to pass up...and I had a coupon.  You might remember this BAG that I also made with this fabric.  

The tutorial also called for rice and polyester stuffing to stuff it with.  Check.  Then the tutorial called for ultra firm Peltex.  This is for the small, flat area where the iPhone sits.  I actually had some of that on hand too from my sewing teacher days.  You might be able to used something else instead if you don't have that.  Maybe just a thicker fabric like denim or a home decor?  It just needs to be a little stiffer/thicker and you need to be able to sew through it so a piece of cardboard wouldn't do. 

The tutorial pictured a small loop at the top for the cord but I didn't do that.  That cord is for the older iPhones and mine is the newer one with the tiny plug in end so it would just fall out anyhow.

I am pretty happy with how it turned out!  I have already used it to start catching up on shows that I missed this week.  If you decide to make one, I would love to see can also post them to my Facebook page HERE.
