iphone or pod pillow--FNSI results

last nights project was taken from THIS tutorial.  another fabulous pinterest find.
**more photos added since orig post**
Phone/Pod Pillow 

i love this because i wont lose my phone under fabric and patterns anymore!!

shes kind of cute empty too. 

i think ill make one for my nightstand.  she lays down nicely while charging :)

I would love to tackle a large scale one for my ipad, but this template took me awhile.  after working all day and being brain tired,  i was having trouble getting the 5" triangles correct.  sewing it together was a breeze. 

i also chose to use crushed walnut shells for the stuffing instead of rice.  wait.......i just realized it can be used as a pincushion also!!!  :)  :)  :)

i need to start surfing your FNSI projects.  i seriously havent sat down all day.  this morning started with garage sales (only 2 good finds) then errands errands errands.  i ran to the dollar tree for some items needed for another pinterest project in the works.  check back this week for that update. 

dont forget to check back tomorrow for the winners.  my co host HEIDI and I will both be drawing a winner.  nothing but love for our FNSI crafters!

Cute little pillow for your I'dude to take a rest. Great alternate use - sewing and music really are perfect partners.

Thanks for hosting FNSI sure is fun to sew with friends.

What a great idea! I just may have to make one so my phone doesn't get lost under fabric either!

Super Cute idea. I've been wishing for something to put my phone or my MP3 player on by my computer when I'm working. This would work perfectly and I have lots of smaller pieces of cotton to use up for something! By the way, I followed you from Sew Many Ways.

What a great project! I need to make myself one as soon as I can. And maybe a few for friends too.

The scientists are still not really sure if the radiation from a mobile phone can hurt you but I would suggest if you have to have it on over night, at least put it on the floor near your bed or a bedside table rather than under your pillow.

What those same scientists ARE sure about is that the current generation of kids are not getting sufficient sleep each night because they are texting or answering their phones during the night and so having disturbed sleep.

So to sum up, does it hurt you? Maybe, but until I'm sure, I keep mine on the floor and turn it off just before I go to sleep, even my closest friends can wait until morning, if it's urgent they will call the house phone.

Awesome pod pillow! Thank you for linking to my tutorial! I'm sorry you had trouble with the triangles, maybe I should upload a pattern for people to print. Anyway, great job!
