Ikea Expedit Bookshelf Sewing Hack

Ikea Expedite Sewing Hack

This week, I have an Ikea Expedit bookshelf sewing hack for you. Selfishly derived, like all of our projects, I needed an attractive way to divide my sewing studio for the summer and these bookcases are perfect, except, I need both sides of the shelf to look nice.

So, I designed these simple square panels which have a little loop of elastic in each corner. I have outlined the entire project and provided you with a mini home studio tour in the video below.

For this project you will need: 4 decorative nails, 8″ of iron on hemming tape, two 14″ squares of fabric and four 3″ strips of 1/8″ elastic.

If you were so inclined, you could size these panels up or down to cover any opening you desire. Have fun with it and please do share before and after photos so we can see your clever solutions too. Until next week, know I will be sending lots of love and creativity your way!

XO, Andrea
