There is something about children’s books that are justÂ irresistible. Â Books are very important to both of our families and we are blessed to have an abundance of them. Â The key is, where to put them all. Â Here at the Spiehs’ house we have one bookshelf devoted to our children’s books, however books end up in every room by the end of the day. Â Anna and Lauren’s room is a little too small to hold their own bookshelf so we came up with this solution. Â The book sling:
First, we took two old curtain rods and attached them to the wall using a double bracket.
The sling was made by quilting together some gingham fabric scraps.
I lined the sling with a toile canvas that had once been curtains in Anna’s nursery.
Last, I sewed two tubes on the ends of the sling and inserted the curtain rods.
Another fun and easy project. Â Now, off to read Imogene’s Antlers.
