This week: Fabric Wall Art.
Fabric Wall Art is a quick and easy way to instantly bring a pop to your room! Wether it be a fabric collection or just an assortment of your favourite prints, arrange a group of fabrics on a wall to create a three-dimensional talking point.
There are a couple of different methods for creating your fabric art.
1. Stretched Canvas

2. Cereal Boxes

I'm sure there are many other ways - including framing your fabric, or stretching it over embroidery hoops, to display your favourites. What have you done with yours?
