Step 1: Get a sock Get a sock that is labeled "antistatic." The silver threads in this material conduct electricity, which is what the touchscreen responds to. Step 2: Cut it out Cut the antistatic part of the sock in a rectangle to the length of the pencil or pen and slightly wider than the size you need to wrap all the way around it, leaving room for a small seam. Tip The more excess material you have, the larger your stylus will be. Step 3: Sew a pocket Lay the rectangle flat and fold one lengthwise end toward the middle about two inches. Sew a seam along the bottom and along both sides of this small flap about 1/4 inch from each edge, leaving the top open, to create a small pocket for the blunt end of the pen or pencil. Step 4: Sew the rest Make sure the other end of the material is slightly shorter than the pencil's length. Then stretch this end and hook it on the pencil's tip. Sew a seam on the rest of the sock material lengthwise along the pencil, leaving a small opening at the end of the first section you sewed so you'll be able to remove the pencil. Step 5: Invert Remove the pencil and use it to carefully and slowly invert the sewn-up sock material. Step 6: Replace and use Replace the pencil inside the material, using the blunt end for the stylus's pointer for your iPhone or iPad. Start tapping! Did You Know?
