Shabby Frames and Fabric



I knew it was time to cut short my blogging break when I
started to miss my blog! A break, even a very short one helps to
stir up those creative juices.

So ...
I took a couple of thrift shop frames, painted them white, shabbied them up
a bit and
filled each with a favorite fabric.
Easy peasy and fun.





You could add a fabric ~ like I did. Or ...
You could take swatches of fabric from a few children's dresses and
make a collage, or
whatever you like. Of course you could do this with a
favorite piece of wallpaper too.

I am joining these fun parties ~

and

Bentley ~ Did you have fun with Momma when
she had a bit more time to spoil you???

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  36. Great idea Susan! I become so attached to some fabrics, and I'm always trying to figure out a way to use them on something. I may just have to frame them after seeing how pretty yours look. Then, I would just have to find a blank space on a wall in my house! Thank you for linking this to Favorite Things. laurie

  38. Okay, Susan. I need a step-by-step sheet. Did you staple the paper to the frame? Or hot glue? I wanna do this but need some help.
