Bookends

I forgot that I took pics of the bookends I made last week!!!  These are so cute.....used linen fabric for the fronts that I stamped with Italian poetry, sayings and Pisa stamp.....backs are a plaid homespun....but you could use whatever fabric matches your decor.   They measure 4" by 6" with a 1/2" seam inside and filled with tiny fish tank gravel......you could use other fillers, but I wanted to make sure they were heavy enough to hold the books.....tell me what you think....

This is a great idea. A great alternative too in a young child's room.
