to do list: book sling


Never mind about the rain gutter bookshelves. I found something in my new Family Fun magazine that I like even better.

A book sling.

Made out of fabric.

That I don't even have to sew.

That's a good thing since I still don't know how to use the sewing machine my mom gave me for my birthday about 10 years ago. I just had to have a sewing machine. I don't know what I was thinking.

Back to the slings, all you need is fabric, a funky curtain rod with two rod holder things and some wooden dowels.

It looks do-able.

That's why it's on my to do list now.

It might have just gotten bumped to the top of the list.

Danny's got some Star Wars library books that will fit quite nicely in there.




p.s. Did you know that Anakin built C-3PO? And that he likes to soak in an oil bath (C-3PO, not Anakin)? I had no idea. Thank goodness for library books. I learn something new almost every day.

Cathy, didn't you watch Star Wars Episode One?! That's where you learn that he build C3PO, and I remember in one of the movies it talking about the oil bath. We have all of them if you need to watch them.

Totally cute! I too like that almost better than the rain gutter thing. Looks more customizable.

So, did you make it? I think it looks cuter than a rain gutter.
