But... I did do a few projects with the tapestry type ones. Three foot stools, and this little switch plate cover in my quilt room. Dead simple to make and probably didn't take 15 minutes. Try it...with any of your deluxe fabric, then fling or donate those heavy books, lighten your load! The heavier fabrics you can just pull tight and use glue gun or tacky glue, thinner quilting fabrics you can do the same or decoupage for a shinier effect.
