Last summer my nan was giving her spare room a facelift and turning it into a craft room. After a casual browse on Pinterest one day, I came across the fabric/ribbon notice boards. I said to nan that I’d make her one for her new room and we board a board ready for it.
About 4 months later…
I was thinking about Christmas presents, with no idea what to do and then I remembered! Down the side of the chair in the living room stood the board, creative fingertips started tingling.
Now, I couldn’t just cover it in fabric, I had to do something a little more special. As nan is very much into her quilting I thought I’d have a go.
After a rummage through my fabric scraps bag, I managed to pull something together. Some spare pieces of ribbon and some fabric buttons later, ta-da! my first fabric notice board 🙂
And I didn’t stop there!
I had uploaded the final photo onto my Instagram and my young cousins pointed out that they liked it. Well that was two more Christmas presents on the to-do list! Luckily I had enquired with Nan on the colours of their rooms.
As I was on a role, I thought it was about time I updated the slightly tatty pin board in the office. Bought this beautiful fabric in Ikea (TIGERÖGA), only £4 a meter! I really do recommend their fabrics, fantastic quality and so cheap.
