Intro: IPod Sync Pad
So basically i wanted to make a soft pad to place my iPod Touch on when it synced, i didn't want it rolling about on my desk and collecting dust/scratches.
It took me about an hour to think up and make and it doesn't use many materials or tools so overall its pretty easy to do.
Does anybody actually read this ? blah blah blah whatever just look at the pictures then, you'd better leave a comment though...
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- Thick foam
- Felt or other soft cloth
- Elastic or a rubber band
- X-Acto knife
- Black pen
Step 2: Cut Foam
Lay the your gadget out on the foam
Use a ruler to mark out the area you need
Use your X-Acto knife to carefully cut the square out
Step 3: Adding Felt 1
Place the square on the felt, make sure there is enough to cover all the sides too.
Glue the foam square to the felt before you cut it
Step 4: Adding Felt 2
Now the square is in place add glue to the sides of the square and fold the edges upwards.
When you have done this it should look like the second pic.
Step 5: Trimming Felt
Now you have floded the edges up you will have little triangles of excess on the corners.
You can trim these off using an x-acto knife or a pair of scissors.
If you accidentally cut too much off like i did then use a black pen to colour the foam to make it blend in.
Step 6: Adding Grippy Feet
At this point i thought i was done but then when i tried it it slipped all over the place on my wooden desk.
To solve this problem i simply cut two small strips off a rubber band and glued them on to the bottom.
Step 7: Wahey Done !
Yay ! All done !
