Hanging Book Display – a diy project for my fabric

I have been holding on to this fabric for almost ten years. It is just a tiny remnant, but I think that it is so cute. And I don’t even really like dogs. I don’t hate them, dog lovers. But you know what I mean.

I knew that I wanted to somehow try to use it in my nursery and included in as part of my original nursery inspiration. I finally decided that maybe the answer was a large pillow for my newly reupholstered chair. But I am not sure that the design would highlight the three different street scenes. They are more horizontal and are better suited for something long and skinny.

Then I saw this great Hanging Book Display thanks to ohdeedoh.

Perfect! Maybe I can have three little hanging displays to show each of the three characters. I’m pretty certain that my final piece(s) won’t be this wide. But I am excited about finally having an excuse to break out the sewing machine.

    How great! I’m the person who submitted that project to Ohdeedoh, and I’m so flattered that you’d use fabric you’ve had for 10 years for it. What precious fabric, by the way.
