Today's project was as fulfilling as it was easy and quick!
Last week I bought from IKEA a beautiful fabric box to keep my sewing supplies, and inside it I found a good-sized piece of solid cardboard that was used to help it keep its shape. I dug in my fabric remnants and I found a beautiful piece of orange fabric (also IKEA), and some left-over duvet wadding that I had diligently removed from an old duvet.
Here are all my materials (plus a staple gun):
a) I layered the materials in this order: first, the fabric right side down, then the wadding and on top the cardboard.
c) Stretch and staple! First I stapled one long side, making sure the wadding 'hugs' the side of the cardboard. Then I proceeded to one of the short sides, and I kept stretching the fabric and stapling until it was dressed all around. Here's what it looks like from the back:
And the side:
d) I cut a small piece of cord, bent it into a loop, and stapled it in the middle of one of the short sides. You can see this in the first picture, where the notice board is hanging from the wall.
Ready! I must admit, I like the pattern so much that I will use it for decoration and not for notes. It is such a lovely and bright colour, and it really brightened up the room!
