10 Minutes

Do you have kids that love to read? Then they will love these quick fabric book slings you can throw together in just 10 minutes! And better still, it involves IKEA products (aren't Ikea hacks just the best? - you browse some of my previous IKEA HACKS on my blog.

The secret to this diy is : cutting corners - literally! Put away your sewing machine, because you wont be needing it this time!

Materials you will need:

1 pillow case (the exact source for the pillow case in my pics can be found on my blog)
Fabric glue
Needle and thread

1. Turn the pillow cover inside out so you can see the sewing seams.

2. You will need to remove the stitches from all four corners of the pillow case. With a pen, mark out the width of your rail so you know exactly how big to make each opening.

3.3. Start removing the stitches from each side

4. Once you are happy with your openings, turn the pillow case back to the right side and add in a coupe of new over and over stitches to the base of all four holes.

Slide both  ends of the pillow cover  through the bars and assemble the towel rail accordingly.

    I use these racks all over my house for organization, but I never thought of using fabric, pillowcases, etc. The racks come in different sizes and with mounting pieces.
