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!
