Hanging Fabric Shelves You’ll need 2 curtain rods, 2 double curtain rod brackets, and some fabric. Instructions: Fold the fabric lengthwise, with right sides facing, so you are working with a double thickness rectangle that is 47 inches by 21 inches. -Using a 1/2-inch seam, sew the fabric together around one of the short sides, the long side and about half-way down the other short side. -Turn the fabric right side out through the opening, poking out the corners with a turning tool (a pencil will do—just don’t poke all the way through). Sew the opening shut by folding the raw edges toward each other, then top stitching down that short end of the rectangle. -Now you’ll need to sew casings for the dowels on the two long ends of the rectangle. Working with one side at a time, fold the long end over so it overlaps by 2 inches. Pin, then stitch all the way down the length of the fabric. Repeat on the other long side. It’s time to hang the hardware on the wall. Locate two studs 47 inches apart on the wall
where you want to hang the book holder. Using a level, mark the locations where you’ll need to drill lightly with a pencil, then drill the holes for the screws. Screw the brackets onto the wall. Hang the fabric on the dowels, then insert the dowels into the brackets. The brackets should come with tiny screws that tighten onto the dowels, holding them in place. Load with books. If you screwed the hardware into studs your book holder should be able to handle a good amount of weight, but don’t go too crazy. Update: Make the sling reversible, sew a pocket on the front for holding little treasures or applique an animal shape, alphabet letter, etc. 23. Instant bookshelves with IKEA.
