I’ve had a quite a few side projects on the go. Some friends wanted a sling bookshelf for their son’s bedroom and I was happy to oblige!
We found a tutorial from Penny Carnival. One of her shelves is pictured below—click on it to head over to her tutorial.
My friends selected their fabric and in about an hour and a half, a shelf was born.
Don’t you just love the puzzle fabric?
This shelf is such a sweet addition to a toddler’s room and it’s so easy for wee ones to take their books in and out. The tutorial is very clear and easy to follow. I think the sewing part of the project is suitable for someone with beginner’s sewing knowledge. And the hardware aspect doesn’t look too difficult… but I wasn’t involved in the installation of it. Regardless, it’s a quick project when all is said and done, and is such a great way to corral books while still encouraging your little reader’s interest.
I think I need to make one for C’s room.
