When I was looking for a birthday present for my sister, I remembered a book holder with a pyramidshape I saw once. I found it again in the internet (http://www.peeramid.com/) but actually I liked neither the offered designs nor the size nor the prize! So I decided to make one on my own!
I took a lot of pics to offer you a step-by-step instruction. As this is the first (and yet only) one I did there are a few things I might change the next time as there were some problems coming up I didn´t thought about before. For example I added the pyramide after stuffing the rim, what made it nearly impossible to sew it with machine and I finally had to do it by hand! So maybe the next time I will try to add it before stuffing. But I left the instructions the way I did the holder, as I wasn´t sure which problems might come up doing it the other way round.
I used synthetic wool for stuffing as my local shop had nothing else and I didn´t have the time to order something in the internet. But I can imagine that it would also work (maybe even better?) with these granulate materials or cherry pits. I used a cotton fabric but also there I can imagine that I will work with every other (non elastic) material. Maybe a classy version made of leather?
I hope you like my book holder and have fun using my instructions! I am curious about what you do with it and would like to know which experiences you make with other materials!
