You Will Need:
Firstly, build the copper pipe structure without the fabric. This is just so you have an idea of what you are working with. Then, remove the two longest copper pipes the (17 inch) - this will be what you use to hold the fabric part of the rack.
If you dont already have a printed fabric that you like you can create one! I just bought a plan white canvas fabric, cut out the 'X" design that I wanted onto the sponge and dipped the sponge into black fabric paint and then onto the fabric. Let dry for about 30 minutes before continuing this to the other side.
Once the fabric is 100% dry measure and cut 4 pieces of hem tape. Using your measuring tape and an iron, make a 2cm wide crease for your hem around all edges of the fabric. The width of the hem will depend on the width of your hem tape. Next place the hem tape under the hem and apply heat using the iron to stick it down. Run the iron back and forth until your fabric has a neat hem all around it.
If you're someone that knows how to use hem tape this is what you would do next.. But If you're anything like me ( end up just getting the hem tape stuck to your iron) then follow along but using your handy dandy super glue!! If you know what I could be doing wrong or would like to leave intrustions on how to properly use hem tape, leave a comment below!
Once you have all of the edges neatly hemmed measure and cut another 3 pieces of hem tape, 2 longer and 1 shorter piece.
Use the short one to stick the middle join down, applying heat with the iron to do so. ( In other words, fold either side evenly into the middle and apply the hem tape below to make sides stick).
Lastly, place the two 17 inch copper pipes inside the folded fabric. Push them to either side, use the 2 long pieces of hem tape to do the final sticking down of the sides, again, applying heat with the iron.
Now that the pipes are secure and the fabric is in place simply place the piping into the copper elbows and voila! You now have a super adorable record rack.
