One small thing: I made the holes with an ordinary nail. Since I was using pleather, it didn't take much effort to push it through. Then I widened each hole a little with a phillips-head screw driver, before pushing the bolt through. I used regular bolts and I think it looks just fine.
Again, I've had these fabric samples for years. They've been turned into doll's bedding and many other things I can't actually remember. I joined them to make a curtain.
And there it is. My alley dresser turned craft storage. Total cost: about $3 - for the nuts needed to attach the drawer pulls (I had bolts lying around but no damn nuts!).
