Craft Closet Apron


Young crafters will always make workrooms of their bedrooms, and of the rest of the house as well, for that matter. With a little imagination and work, you can make a bedroom for your child that strikes the right balance between creativity and chaos; one that lets a child's imagination take wing.


  • Scissors
  • Cotton
  • Bookcase
  • Needle and thread
  • 1-inch-wide ribbon
  • Four screws
  • Glue


  1. Step 1

    Cut each of two panels of cotton to fit across half of bookcase (add about 5 inches to each for pleats and hems). Hem all sides. Sew two evenly spaced 1-inch box pleats at the top of each panel; sew a 1-inch-wide ribbon across the tops, 1 inch down. Make buttonholes on the outer edges of each panel, through the ribbon.

  2. Step 2

    Attach four screws to the front of the top shelf, one on each side and two in the center, and hang panels; glue button to the head of each screw to finish.
