Book Sling ... A Pinterest Success Story

Having two girls sharing one room means that there is not much "play space" after you set up two beds and all the toys.  I had a book shelf set up, but when I saw this on Pinterest I thought I could free up some floor space by making these.  I found a GREAT tutorial for it at Penny Carnival.  Rather than re-writing it ... I will show you my pictures of the process along with general steps written out.

Fold fabric in half (right sides together), iron and then sew along edges leaving a small spot where you can turn it right side out.  I added top stitching for a finished look.
Sew a 2" pocket in the long sides.

I used a 3/4" dowel and a 5/8" dowel because that's what fit the brackets that I chose.

It doesn't hold as many books as I hoped it would, but it sure is cute!
