Making a Room Divider with Fabric and Cardboard
Making Things that are Easy and Quick
Everything I do is not always sewing as you could see from my Polar Fleece edging blog. Now I am sewing today, but I am planning a room divider. I really don't lift heavy things, but I have a doorway that is just a hole to under the stairs where I store things. I want to put a room divider there.
A. I can't find anything I like.
B. They are probably heavy.
So I am going to put random pieces of cardboard together to the size I want and then cover it with Library fabric that looks like books on shelves. This has been something I have been searching for and have not been able to find for a month or two. So I decided to make one.
I really only need to make it to cover the door way and if it is lightweight I can just move it aside and into the storage area when I go in or out, which is not very often. Maybe 8 ft high and then about 3-4 ft rectangle of space above.
I think I have enough supplies to make this with stuff I have out in the garage. I used to do stained glass, but haven't in years.
I ordered the fabric. The plan is to make this and then measure the hole above the divider door way and then make a stained glass window for above the doorway. This will make me very happy when I wake up in the morning. This is part of my organizational plan for my little living space.
Just a plan right now. I am going to ride my exercise bike... then take a hot bath and then sew a few things...... Happy planning
Create something special can just be simple....Happy Sewing
