Christmas gifts underway – Cell phone stand

I am not sure if I have mentioned this before, I work for a large software company. I have decided to provide a function Christmas gift to some of my favorite work people.  A lot of my colleagues spend a considerable amount of time on the phone and they either hold their phones or lay them down on the desk.

As I was playing with my new cover, for my phone (which has a build in stand) I had the idea I could make little stands for their desks. I found this image on google images, and thought it was adorable and perfect for Christmas gifts.

(I have since found these in this Etsy store: Dog named Banjo, they have a great selection)

I set out, to make this as simple as possible, and after 30 minutes this morning the first gift is complete.

I do need to go back and fix that front stitching – I am thinking I will sew the seam with a slip stitch instead.

Materials:
(1) 12″ x 8″ Fabric Square
3/4 Bag of Rice
Polyester stuffing
Pellon Peltex Ultra Firm (1.5″ x 5.5″)

If anyone is interested in a tutorial, I can post one during the week.

NEW PHOTO added…This is where I got to by the end of the day, I was excited these came out as quickly as they did. I also fixed that front seam on the purple stand.

Anyway, posting a little late but linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.

    YES I am interested! I really love practical gifts that nearly everyone can use. Sometimes I like making a special individual gift for each person, but other times making the same thing for everyone is THE answer! And what a great stocking stuffer this is! I’d love to know how to make them. Thanks!

      They do work for e-readers and iPads too. I would say it works well with the long side down….I would make them a little bigger if a person wants them to stand up along the short side of the iPad.

      Post for the tutorial is coming Friday. I have a pretty good stash now and these are some of my fabrics I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with….they work perfect for this project.
