Mission: Use your fabric.
Project: Hanging Book Sling.
After our move, I became slightly embarrassed by the sheer amount of fabric I have accumulated. I wouldn't call it a 'problem' exactly....but really, enough is enough. In our new house I just don't have the space to
I pulled out an old bed sheet in good condition - that even matched the kids play space! And set to work. The tutorial was very easy to follow. For the hanger, I purchased a double curtain rod from Walmart. Doesn't get much easier to hang than that (much to my husband's delight)!
Since the fabric was plain, I pulled out the Cricut and cut a 'BOOKS' freezer paper stencil (we can talk about doing that another day - so easy....no sewing required!). But....look at what a mess I made with the fabric paint! Aaargh.
Thankfully I have a very talented friend who suggested I add a bookworm to the sling to cover the paint spill...if I'd have known I was adding the worm I would have left it at 'BOOK' instead of 'BOOKS'. Oh well!
Great use of a big piece of fabric, and a wonderful way to clear out a bookshelf to make room for...more toys?
