Last month, my husband and I were blessed with another beautiful niece! Along with all the excitement of a new baby in the family, I also had a chance to make some cute things for the new little one. Just before her baby shower, my sister-in-law mentioned these fabric book holders that she had seen online. I had seen them too, and offered to make them for her as a gift.
The fabrics here are a basic gray cotton and Souvenir in Lemon, from Amy Butler's Lark collection. I also bought two 45" white dowels (in the curtain section) from Menard's, plus 2 double curtain rod holders (also from Menard's). I planned to glue a wooden ball onto the end of each rod also (actually, they were doll's heads from Michaels, which have one flatter side), but have yet to paint them a good matching white color.
One of the shelves is shallower than the other, which works better for showing off the shorter books. Overall, I think they turned out pretty well and my sister-in-law was very pleased with them! She actually incorporated the yellow fabric into the rest of the nursery, which turned out very cute.
