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?

50 Things to do With a Fat Quarter: #14 Mini Tissue Pack Cover

26. August 2013 14:54 by Liz Burton | 0 Comments

For our fat quarter project this week, we thought we would sew this handy tissue pack cover. You can throw one in your purse, your diaper bag, or a child's back pack.  These are really simple and fast.

I am using a fun Bicycles, Scooters & Wagons fabric from the Dress Up Days collection designed by Doohikey Designs for Riley Blake Designs.  It is available at 4my3boys Fabrics.

Let's get started!

Step 1:  Gather your materials; a favorite fat quarter, rotary cutter, ruler, pins, and a tissue pack.

Step 2:  With rotary cutter and ruler, cut three rectangles 3 1/2" x 5 1/2".

Step 3:  Take two of the pieces and place them right side down. Then fold the fabric over 1" and iron it flat.

Step 4a: Place the back piece right-side up on the table.  4b: Take one of the front pieces and place it right-side down on top of the back piece, making sure to line up the top raw edges.  4c:  Take the other front piece and place it right-side down on top of the other two pieces, making sure to line up the bottom raw edges.  4d: Then pin it.

Step 5: sew! Using 1/4" sew allowance, sew around the entire rectangle.

Step 6: Turn the fabric right-side out and insert the tissues!

12. August 2013 22:07 by Liz Burton | 0 Comments

It's the most wonderful time of the year...Fa la la la la! I hear this is a holiday song, but I sing it at this time of year! Don't get me wrong, I love my children and I love summertime but there is something to be said for routine and time away from each other. To send our little ones off to school, I thought I would share a fun tutorial on a pencil case. 

Have them pick out their favorite fabric & get sewing! I am using Rainbow Peace Signs from 4my3boyz Fabrics.

50 Things to do With a Fat Quarter: #11 Potluck Bowl Cover

5. August 2013 23:15 by Liz Burton | 0 Comments

It's August! I can hardly believe it. Soon we will be ending our summers and getting back into the routine of school. Do you have end of summer parties coming up? Well, if you do, you could take your potluck salad in a bowl with a fabric cover made from a fat quarter! I based this project from a tutorial found at The Cottage Home.

 

So easy to make! I am using the Better Gnomes & Gardens Mushrooms on Pink from 4my3boyz Fabrics. Let's get started!

 

For the length of the elastic, I simply took my elastic and measured it around the bowl, pulling it snug. 

And there you have it! Cute & fun!
