Introduction: DON'T DISMISS THE EMESIS BAG (AS AN IPOD STAND)
Just because you don't get airsick, do not dismiss the free emesis (vomit) bag provided by the air lines. I recently found myself on some long flights without my iPod Touch stand to make movie viewing handsfree. What to do? Here are 2 solutions I created.
After completing the first flight I left the bag on that flight for its intended use if necessary. The second flight, different air line, I had to modify my technique for a slightly different type of bag which had a wired closure.
The finished stand supported my iPod Touch quite nicely.

Step 1: DOG EAR THE BAG
The first bag did not have the wired closure so I simply "dog-eared" the corners of the bottom of the bag to allow for easy insertion of that end into the opened top of the bag.
A few folds to the body of the bag created the appropriate viewing angle (certainly a matter of preference) for me.
Step 2: CREATING THE STAND
The wired bag actually is my preference since the wire wings provided additional support for the inclined iPod Touch.
Step 3: ENJOY THE VIEWING
You should know that the red cover is a silicone cover which is not at all slippery and therefore allowed the iPod Touch to remain in position at the inclined angle.
The wired winged emesis bag should hold a slippery case in place as demonstrated in the photo.
