Inexpensive design wall

howdy!   For awhile now I’ve wanted to make a design wall.  This is a space dedicated on a wall in my craft room where I can put the pieces of my quilts as I’m piecing so that I can start to seem quilt come together. 

I’ve done a bunch of research and finally made one this week.  For under 15 bucks! 

I bought these fun little nuggets at Home Depot 

 

Little clothes pins!   And oh so easy to attach! 

The backside of a flannel table cloth is the perfect surface for a wall like this.  The flannel is just fuzzy enough so that you fabric pieces will stick to it without any pins! 

I set out to find a flannel backed tablecloth this week.  I couldn’t find one anywhere! 

Sooo.. I headed to joanns fabrics and they have outdoor fabric that you can buy by the yard 

  

 Fun print, eh?  I might have to go buy more for another project! 

It was 5.99 a yard.. I bought 2 yards and with a 50% coupon it was well.. 5.99 

(Don’tcha love my mad math skills? 🙂 )

I simply spaced the little clothespins across the top of my wall 

Then went to hang the tablecloth.. But the tablecloth was too thin and kept slipping out of the clips 

I added a piece of webbing left over from tote bags I made a few years back 

 

And voila! It was perfect! 

  

  I’m very proud of little ol’ me 🙂 

Enjoy your Sunday!

  1. Love this idea!! I need a design wall very badly – my design ‘bed’ just doesn’t cut it! I also need some ideas for storing my fabric…I don’t have a ton but what I do have is also stacked on the bed :-/
