Custom Tot Tutors Book Rack

51GnRuj1DGL._SX300_ I got this Tot Tutors book rack for the playroom last week. Seems like an easy way for Miss A. to take her own books out, when she feels like reading. It’s not as big as it looks, only 28×28″ (71x71cm). The colors are cute, but I knew they weren’t really going to match my ideas for the playroom, so I decided to make new ‘shelves’.

An fairly easy project, just 5 pieces of fabric, but my major problems is always that I can’t sew a straight line. They always end up wobbly or slanted. Ugh. Any tips? The problem starts with not being able to cut straight with the ruler and rotary cutter. I follow seam guide lines, but my sewing is never as straight as I’d like. Even when drawing erasable lines….Any recommendations would be much appreciated!

– 1 yard of Bohemian Charms in Cream – Bijoux by Bari J
– the yellow is a vintage fabric I got at a recent ASG estate sale.
– white flannel (lining)

    Mooi geworden! Veel beter dan die hele zoete kleurtjes. Misschien helpt een walking foot bij het recht naaien? Mijn naden worden er wel rechter van als ik die gebruik :)

      hey, wat een goed idee! dankjewel! :) Ik heb er notabene een, maar nooit aangedacht om die met wat meer regelmaat te gebruiken (ipv enkel bij lastige stoffen, alhoewel de Art Gallery stoffen toch wel wat gladder zijn dan andere quilting cottons)
