My son loves drones, everything about them. He has a little one, but he really wants a big one. So one day he asks if he can have a landing pad for his little drone. Took a little bit and I came up with a quick design, sent it to get printed and sewn.

He loves it and uses it all the time. This is how to design/order your own.

Step 1: Drone Pad - Website for Design

Go to www.canva.com it's an amazingly simpel site to design all kinds of things, but I am going to show you how to design your own custom Drone landing pad.

  1. Once on the site, sign up for a FREE account with your email, Google or Facebook accounts.
  2. Log in and click, "Create a design" (Top left, green button)

Step 2: Drone Pad - Dimensions

  1. Click the, "Use Custom Dimensions" button (Top right)
  2. Fill in the dimension: 24" x 24"
  3. Make sure you pick inches in the little drop down box. If you leave it alone your design will be very, very small!
  4. Click, "Design"

Step 3: Drone Pad - Design

On the far left are the options, most free, to design your idea.

This is where you put in the elements and items you want. It will take a little practice to get what you want. Once you play for a while you will figure out how things work.

If you want to upload an image of your own that's one of the options. You can land your drone on a friends face!

1. I am going for bright and geometric... so I am picking a bright yellow background.

2. I am adding lines for safety. A big round shape from the, "Elements" tab on the left. The dashed lines let you know when things are centered up and down.

3. When doing your design keep important elements away from the edge of the 24"x24". I will need to fold over about 1" on each side for sewing. So the finished Drone pad will be 22"x22".
