Mannequin Bookends DIY

This project is for all levels.
Skill Level- 1 Button

Supplies:

*Since burlap has a loose weave, I lined each pattern piece to prevent the filling from falling out.

Basic Instructions:

Print, pin and cut fabric to pattern. Pin right sides together and stitch all around with 3/8″ seam allowance; leaving an opening for turning.

The Sewing LoftTo form the corners, fold the side seam to match the seam along the bottom. This will form a triangle. Draw a line 1″ from the point of corner and straight stitch. Clip excess fabric and repeat on other corner.

Fill with stuffing of choice. I used a funnel and loaded mine up with reptile sand for weight. Slip stitch or ladder stitch the opening closed and place next to your favorite books!

    There is no template for this pattern. No matter which link you click on it takes you back to Craftsy with no template!

    • Hello Gloria,
