Here’s how to Create a Bean Bag Holder for a Tablet:

Reading on my iPad has become my way to unwind at night before bed, but trying to read in bed is not always comfortable. I had part of a bag of Poly-Fil® Classic Bean Bag Filler leftover from my How to Refill a Bean Bag Chair post from a few months ago. So, I decided to create an Easy Bean Bag Tablet Holder from a fat quarter of bright and colorful fabric.

STEP ONE

To begin the Easy Bean Bag Tablet Holder, gather all supplies. A fat quarter of fabric is normally 18″ by 18″ square and can be found at Joann for just a few dollars. Fold the fat quarter in half with the right sides of the fabric facing each other, inside. Secure with straight pins, along the long open edge.

STEP TWO

Sew the open long edge and one of the short edges of the fabric to create a bag shape with sewing machine. Leave the second long edge open at this time. Snipe the fabric corners from the sewn edges, diagonally with scissors. I recently discovered pre-threaded bobbins and they have been a game changer for all of my machine stitched projects. Turn Bean Bag Holder right side out and push out corners to create sharp points. I love Fiskars Amplify Mixed Media Scissors for all my fabric projects.

STEP THREE

If working on this project by yourself, find a large cylinder shaped container. This is my flour canister, which was already clean because I don’t bake, I’m too busy crafting. Place the sewn bottom into the container and gather the top edges. This will hold your fabric up and open during filling. You will need two hands to pour in the Poly-Fil® Classic Bean Bag Filler.

STEP FOUR

The Poly-Fil® Classic Bean Bag Filler has a plastic pour spout at the top of the bag with a resealable lid. Remove the lid and pour the bean bag filler into any size opening. Saving any unused product is a breeze, just screw on the lid. Grab the bottom of the bag with one hand and covering the spout with your palm, tip the bag up into the opening of the fabric, and then remove your hand and pour in the Poly-Fil® Classic Bean Bag Filler. Once filled to 3/4 full, tilt the bag back down as you cover the spout with your palm. This will prevent any of those pesky little bean bag beads from escaping.

STEP FIVE

Remove the fabric bag from the container and shake to settle the Poly-Fil® Classic Bean Bag Filler beads. Fold the raw edges of the fabric inward and then secure the finished edge with straight pins. This Easy Bean Bag Tablet Holder gets its shape from seams sewn in opposite directions. One seam is vertical and the other is horizontal. Sew a double seam across the outside of the fabric along the pinned edge with a sewing machine, to finish. Remove pins and trim any long threads with scissors.

    I love this idea! I think I would fill it with beans or rice though. My granddaughter would just love this! She is always trying to stand her iPhone up and even though I bought her one stand, she could probably use many. I have tons of fat quarters so off to work I go!

      Yes, Shirley, you can never have too many! I think the Bean Bag Filler makes it lighter and more comfortable for use on your lap.
