It came to me (as the phone was rattling and buzzing away next to my head while I was trying to sleep) that my phone needed its own little bed.
Today's "How Tuesday" tutorial will focus on a little rice-filled bed I crafted up for my lil' buddy. It is a variation on a pretty basic beanbag pattern, so the uses are many.
|I used a 10x10 piece of flannel, some fun trim and rice as the filling. |
You could also use beans or popcorn.
|Stitched on the trim with my trusty old featherweight. If your machine|
can do decorative stitches, this would be a great spot for them.
You could also top stitch or embroider a design.
|Folded the piece in half and pinned the right sides together.|
Sewed one long edge and one short edge closed.
|Turned the piece right-side out and filled with rice.|
I used about 1 3/4 cups.
|Folded the rough edges under and sewed the open end closed.|
|Ahhh, a restful place for my phone to charge.|
By utilizing smaller squares, you could make beanbags for the kids.
