I'm happy with how my book corner for Lucia's nursery is coming out. The booksling turned out really great--it was easy to make following this tutorial on Penny Carnival.
I finally finished the pillow covers I've been working on (covered up some old pillows I had in closet) and have them piled on the floor. Hopefully, Juliet and Lucia have fun lounging around on them and reading some books together.
If you're wondering about the fabric it's Lizzy House Castle Peeps Castle Flags Orange.
Here's a close-up.
I also made a booksling for Juliet. This one is right next to her bed, since that's where we do most of our reading together these days. I thought it would also be good to have some nearby for when she wakes up in the morning (before I do)! (Do you recognize the creature pillow? We finally finished it!)
As you can see, she is currently without a bedspread, so you will just have to feast your eyes on the unmade bed and wrinkled sheets. (Can you tell which room a child is actually living in?)
I used the same fabric for Juliet, but chose the yellow option this time. (Lizzy House Castle Peeps Castle Flags Yellow)

I already mentioned where I found the tutorial for these slings, but I thought I'd also share where I first saw this idea: Finn's bookslings @ Sew Liberated--I've been drooling over these ever since I first saw how Meg's turned out!
My friend Michelle made a beautiful one for her daughters and even used two different fabrics! I love how she has the letter e on the front.
If you're looking for another DIY book nook project, take a look at this rain gutter bookshelf tutorial! I love the look of this as well!
Have you made bookslings or rain gutter bookshelves? What are your must-haves for a good book nook?
