fabric friday: 2-4-11

hello, readers! in an attempt to spruce up and be more interesting and design-focused on my blog, i decided to implement a new feature - FABRIC FRIDAY. i probably need some super cute logo-type thing to make this idea a super awesome idea, but for now, this is what you get.

fabric friday will include fabric finds from vendors i've worked with or sites i love, fun or out-of-the-box ways to use fabrics, fabrics relating to projects i've worked on or am currently working on or even a fabric tip that i've found.

i thought i would kick off this feature with a favorite fabric design idea that was posted on one of the blogs i visit daily. joy from joy ever after posted several months ago this awesome wall decor using fabric and stretcher bars. i have been contemplating attempting this type of DIY for our bedroom, which has grey and yellow theme.

Ooo. I like this idea. I need more wall decor for my bedroom too.

Where do you get the stretching frames? I wonder if my dad or Mike could make them?

Then - need to find cool fabric.

fun!! that's what i was thinking for my bedroom too!!! yeah. i need stretching frames too. . . or could you just make a frame with wood and then pull the fabric tight and use a staple gun? or is that the same thing?
