This is my teaching podium. Johnny was going to build me a podium to lay my materials on etc. while I am teaching. Since I am new to 4th grade, I figure I am going to need to keep my TE close by. It is a small desk my children have both outgrown. We placed it on bed risers. Then I put a skirt around the desk. I made the skirt out of the same fabric I used to make my curtains. The podium is exactly what I needed!
I was very pleased with how my curtains turned out. I just made rectangular panels then I sewed round plastic hooks on the back. Next we ran string through the hooks and pulled up the curtains to make the shape at the bottom.
