What contact adhesive did you use? I've been wanting to make one of these with some old napkins and Super 77.

I like that it's flexible so it can fit any arm. If the fabric side was cushioned you could double it as a warm food holder. It would be perfect for those big pans.

I like it!

Might add a little support under it for couches with more rounded arms (to make a flat surface for drinks to stand on).
