Phone Holder DIY

I really needed a stand to hold my phone. Plus the grandkids were trying to make makeshift options while they were watching YouTube Kids on my old phone. So I set out to make one. This works really great. Moreover, I had to make several so everybody has one. lol.  I hope you enjoy and make several of your own of this phone holder DIY.  It’s fast and easy, and great for a beginner. I enjoy it while I’m reading the Bible app.


If you are a visual learner – Watch on YouTube here.

1. Cut out pieces for your phone holder:

=Cut 1 piece 5″ x 16″
=Cut 1 piece 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″

2. Fold 5” x 16” piece in half lengthwise with right sides together.
Sew 1/4” seam all the way down one side.
Stitch 1/4” seam down the other side but stop 2” from fold.
The top is still open.

3. Turn right side out and press, pressing under 1/4” on the open 2 inches.

4. Up from the folded edge, draw a line 2” across, and a line 2 1/2” across, because the phone will rest between these lines.
I used a heat erasable pen so it would evaporate with pressing.
Sew on the two lines.
Press, and the pen marks will disappear.

Ready to stuff your phone holder:

5. Insert funnel in the 2” opening and scoop the poly-pellets.
Unlike rice, the poly-pellets are non-toxic and washable, therefore it won’t attract animals, plus you can wash it if it’s needed.
Stitch closed with a needle and thread using a whip stitch.

6. Additionally, take the 4 1/2” x 6 1/2” piece of fabric. Fold the 4 1/2” sides together with wrong sides together.
Sew two sides together using 1/4” seam.
One end will be open.
This is going on the inside of the other piece so the seams (raw edges) can be open.

7. Using the funnel and scoop, fill with poly-pellets leaving 1” free at the top.
Pin at 1” the opposite direction than the last seam because this will keep it more upright.
Sew together 1/4” away.
Remove pins.

8. Slip smaller piece, the one with the pellets, into larger piece.

9. Fill in with poly-fil polyester fiber fill around edges and at the top because this will keep it firmer.

10. In conclusion, fold under 1/4” at top, folding in the sides and pin.
It will be the opposite direction than the bottom.
Sew 1/8” on the top edge because this will keep it closed.

Voila, you are finished.
