Last week Abi and I flew from Boston to Salt Lake City to visit family. I knew that I needed something to help entertain her for the long flight so I downloaded some movies onto my phone. Then I realized there was little to no chance of her willingly holding the phone long enough to make it through the movie and there was no way I was going to do it for her.
So, true to form, I hopped on Pinterest to see what they have to say about phone props. I couldn’t really find any tutorials that I liked, but I did find a picture of one that looked easy enough.
I was so excited and got working right away creating and documenting the process. Then I accidentally deleted all photos on my camera because sometimes I’m awesome like that. I plan on making a few more of these in the very near future, but until then here is a little run down with a few sketches of what I did.
First I found a piece of fabric in my stash about 8×10 inches. I folded that in half – right sides together – and sewed one short side and the long side shut. Then I turned it right side out.
Next I filled the bottom inch or so with uncooked rice. Then I sewed two lines of stitches with about an inch of space between them.
Then, fill the last section with rice, but instead of closing it up with the seem parallel to the two that you just did, sew it perpendicular to those seems so that you create a triangle. Does that make sense? You can kinda figure it out by looking at the finished photo above.
And that’s it! A prefect solution that gave me (and more importantly, the other passengers on the plane) some piece and quiet for a little bit.
