    Pattern

    Hi! Does anyone know where I can find a pattern or tutorial on making a bedside cell phone holder that can Velcro over a bed rail? I volunteer at a hospital and we would like to make these for patients with cell phones. Thanks!

    Maybe you need to look for a small walker type caddy. Maybe one of these would suit you. http://www.sewingsupport.com/sewing-...lker-bags.html

    If the bag fits the phone too tightly, it might cause someone on medication to miss the bag and the phone hit the floor.

    You might be able to start with a placemat size and fold and sew one.

    I bet you can convert this by using Velcro on the back. They can old more than a cell phone, too....book, glasses, tissue......

    Sounds like a great thing to make. A smaller version of a walker bag.

    Maybe this might give you an idea of how to design one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzhusCQcVCo

    I didn't click on any of these patterns but maybe something here could be adapted? http://tipnut.com/organizers-caddies/

    If you really want it to only hold a cell phone I recommend 2 strips of fabric 5 1/2" x 18" and 1 piece of batting (such as W&N) the same size. Sandwich but don't bother to quilt. Near one end sew a 6" piece (fuzzy side) of Velcro lengthwise down the center of the sandwich. Skip 2 or 3 inches and sew the (hook side) Velcro along the same line. On the opposite end of the sandwich: Bind across the end, the fold up about 5" creating a pocket Bind both sides of the sandwich with the pocket folded up. You now have a phone holder the can be hung from a variety of bars or chair arms

    All of these sound very helpful.

    Hey! What a great idea! You will start a new fad and a good one at that! I was recently in the hospital and would have loved this!
