I would be concerned if the bellows were really extended, but could you put a wooden dowel across the standards to support the cloth? I drape mine over my 4x5 due to pinholes, but the extension is not so much that the cloth reall puts any weight on it. The dowel could be sewn into a sort of 'bellows sleeve' like what has been mentioned earlier and it might keep the weight off the bellows...
