Take your 1,70m fabric and sew 1 short side and 1 long side.
If its correct, the other long side is allready closed by the fold of it.

After that, you can finish the side that is still open by folding the edges and sew this.

Fill them up with whatever you want.

Step 3: Tunnels

So now we're going to make the tunnels, which you can pull over your head, creating a little tent later.

First you take 1 m of black fabric.

You close it in lenght, you leave the short sides open. Sew the edges for a good look.

Then you do the same thing with your happy fabric.
After this, you put the black one in the colored one. Sew them togeter on both short sides.

Now you have somekind of a tunnel that you can easily put over the tv screens, just tie with a string or ribbon.
Could you upload the videos, too? Thanks.

Could you please explain what a video installation is? My guess is that some other people may not know, so could you put it in the intro of the instructable? Thanks!
yeah i have no clue really what you are talking about here.
