A Sweet and Simple iPad Stand

I am plugging away on the whole WIP thing, but now and again the Quilters ADHD kicks in and I want to make something NEW. I've decided when that urge hits, I'll make something quick and simple for around the house. The only condition is I have to finish it straight away!

We recently subscribed to Foxtel (cable TV) and one of the perks is that I can watch on my iPad, no matter where I am. I love to watch music videos while I'm sewing, the only problem was that my iPad cover flipped over into a stand that was way too low. So naturally, the only solution was to make a new one.

I used some of my stashed American Jane prints to make this super simple iPad stand. Then I decided I liked it so much that I made a smaller one for my phone (it's a bit big for the phone, but never mind!). Note the blue, because I have to share the iPhone one with my daughter!

After a quick search on Pinterest, I found this fantastic free pattern on Craftsy by Gaila Designs. This pattern was super easy to follow and came together very quickly. I also love that it folds flat so I can easily throw it in a bag and take it with me.

To make the smaller stand I cut the base board to 4in x 4in and cut each piece of fabric at 5 1/2 x 18/12in. (This will make sense once you read the pattern).

Too easy!

Linking up with Sew Cute Tuesday over at Blossom Heart Quilts. And Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation.
