50 Things You Can Do With a Fat Quarter - #16 DIY Fat Quarter Projects for your Electronics

DIY Fat Quarter Projects for your Electronics

I thought I would share with you some DIY ideas for your electronic devices using a fat quarter of fabric. I have included links to tutorials for each of them and some fabric suggestions from our unique collection of novelty fabrics available by the fat quarter at 4my3boyz Fabrics. Check these out!

E-reader, Nook or iPad Stand

What a cool E-reader, Nook or iPad stand by Rikka J.! She has a great tutorial in her blog Ricochet and Away.
This project uses 1 cotton fat quarter but could be done with a charm pack of 5" squares if you want to have more of a quilted look. You could use it to read recipes. For this purpose using oilcloth rather than plain cotton would work better.

This would look great with one of these fabrics from 4my3boyz Fabrics:

No-Sew Mouse Pad In need of a mouse pad for room-to-room roving with your laptop? This quick no-sew version can be made from fabric and cork. I found this tutorial at the blog Funky & Delightful.

How would it look with one of these fabrics?

Camera Cozy

I love this Camera Cozy. What a great idea to protect your point and shoot camera bumping around inside of your purse. Ashley has the tutorial on her blog Mommy by Day Crafter by Night.

I would love one made with one of these fabrics available in my store:

Cell Phone Case

Erin Erickson shares the tutorial for this awesome iPhone Sleeve in her blog Dog Under My Desk

Can you imagine how chic you would be with a phone case in one of these fabrics?

Lunch Bag Tutorials

19. August 2013 08:52 by Liz Burton | 0 Comments

Last week we did a great tutorial on pencil bags for back-to-school.  This week we bring you another back-to-school idea that also helps our environment.  We like that you can throw these in the washer instead of throwing out a brown paper lunch bag.  And they are so much cuter!   4my3boyz Fabrics has just about any novelty fabric you can dream of! Why not let the kids pick some out and make it their own.


Here are some great tutorials we found on making your own re-usable lunch bags. 


In the top left picture, Pink Penguin shares a great tutorial on a lunch bag with handles.

In the top right picture, Create Celebrate Explore shares a lunch bag with a button closure & a carrying handle.

In the bottom left,  Fiskars has a great tutorial for an insulated lunch bag.

In the bottom right, Bead & Needle share a tutorial for a simple lunch bag with a Velcro closure.


Here are some fabrics from 4my3boyz Fabrics that we think would make fabulous lunch bags.

Food Festival Breads Rolls and Bagels All Over Doesn't that make you hungry just looking at it!


Mary Engelbreit's Mottos Fabric Makes you want to "Put your heart in it!"


And I don't think you can go wrong with Schools Supplies fabric--be sure to check out all the other School Themed fabrics in this category.


And last, but certainly not least is Pizza!! Again, you need to be sure to check out all the food related fabrics! So much fun!


Happy Lunching!

Fabulous DIY Table Runners

25. September 2012 06:04 by tbev | 0 Comments

As the seasons change, I'm always ready to change up the decorations in my house, and a fresh new table runner is one of my favorite ideas. What better way to put that stash of fat quarters to use? I found three great DIY ideas for every skill level.

Easy: Lovely Crafty Home shares simple instructions for this quick table makeover, perfect for a beginning sewing project. Customize width and length for your table.

Medium: This quilted runner from Polka Dot Chair requires a bit more skill, but can still be put together in an afternoon or two. 

Expert: Four fat quarters and quilt-as-you-sew instructions make this runner a simple project for a confident seamstress. Pattern from Quilt Warehouse.

I love to see what fabulous fat quarters can do, don't you?
