I sometimes like to pretend that I know how to run a sewing machine. I had home-ec class in middle school! Of course I know how to sew! My mom also helped me learn, too! I purchased a sewing machine last fall. I had wanted one for awhile. Not so much to sit down and make a quilt. But just to sew up some quick things or fix something that needed to be fixed.
I have wanted book holders for my kids’ bunk beds for awhile. They have book lights and love to read/look at books at night when they are going to bed. But then they tend to sleep with the books under their pillows or somewhere in their beds! I usually send these types of projects to my mother-in-law! Now, that woman can sew! And she can always take something so simple and make it quite fun and something I never thought it would look like.
I decided though I wanted to try this one on my own. I knew it wouldn’t be perfect, but I knew I could make something that would work! I found some fabric to match their rooms and went to work.
I am not going to explain how I did this one. It was all in my head. They didn’t turn out quite like I wanted, but they work for now and the kids love them. I might send the remaining fabric to my mom-in-law and see what she can come up with. For now, I guess I can be proud of what I attempted to make!
