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?
