That being said I am currently working on my new crafting space in the basement. I started with cool grey walls, white cabinets and grey counter-tops. I thought that I would add some light blue and dark charcoal grays to go in a more neutral direction. Boy was I wrong. As soon as I stated wandering around Joanne Fabrics my eye kept being drawn to all the bold colorful prints. Why fight it? I am who I am...
I decided to create a memo board for the wall to help contain some of my ideas. I bought a long skinny canvas to use as my base. A yard of fabric, some batting matching ribbon and some buttons.
I wrapped the canvas with the batting and stapled it to the wooden frame using my staple gun. I then trimmed the excess off.
I then did the exact same process with my fabric.
Then I laid out my ribbons on the front of the board. I weaved them in and out with one another and then stapled the ribbons to the back of the frame.
