Instead of standard bookends, sew "sandbags" from fun, colorful fabric to corral your books, files, and folders. To make, cut two 8x10-inch pieces of fabric, place right sides together, and sew three sides using 1/2-inch seam allowances. Turn right side out, then insert a sealable plastic bag filled with sand.
