How To Make A Book Holder For Reading
Books are one of the most enjoyable parts of our lives. We read them to learn, we read them to escape, and we read them because they’re a great way to spend an afternoon or evening.
But sometimes it can be difficult to find that perfect position in bed or on the couch, where you can comfortably hold your book while reading. Luckily, I’ve got a solution for you! Follow these instructions to build a simple but comfortable book holder for reading in bed.
In order to make a book holder for reading in bed, you will need the following materials:
- 1/2 yard of fabric (preferably cotton or linen)
- A needle
- A ruler or measuring tape
- Sewing machine (optional)
A Step by Step Guide on How to Make a Book Holder for Reading:
Step 1: (cut a piece of fabric)
The first step is to cut a piece of fabric that is 18 inches wide and 22 inches long. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise, wrong sides together, and press it with an iron. Then, using a sewing machine or needle and thread, sew around the edge of the fabric, leaving a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Be sure to back stitch at the beginning and end of your stitches.
Step 2: (use scissors to create fabric Sides)
Next, use scissors to create a 3 inch opening along one of the long sides of the fabric. This will be used to insert the dowel later on. Again, press the fabric with an iron.
step 3: (fold short side of fabric)
Fold each short side of the fabric inward 1/2 inch and press. Then fold the long side with the opening inward 1 inch and press. Sew around all four sides of the fabric, making sure to back-stitch at the beginning and end of your stitches, to keep the fabric from fraying.
step 3: (create a loop)
Now comes the fun part! Create a loop with one end of the dowel. Insert the dowel into the opening on the fabric (toward the wrong side). Then, run a bead of hot glue along each end of the dowel and press it firmly using an old credit card or other flat tool.
step 4: (cut a length of ribbon)
Finally, cut a length of ribbon about 3/4 inch longer than your jar’s diameter, and tie a double knot at one end. Insert it through the loop you created and then pull it back out through to make a large bow. Trim off any excess length on both sides.
