I’m a drive-by crafter. My inner perfectionist gets a kick out of small projects that are easy to do. It helps me relax and feel like I’ve accomplished something.
Dealing with fabrics happens less frequently. This is because I’m a novice sewer with a mild phobia of sewing machines–those stitchers look like they could really take a few fingers off!
But I can do this fabric craft. Seen on Pinterest, accomplished in my own study, no sewing involved, and fingers remaining in tact.
An old canvas (or new if there’s nothing hideous you want to cover)
Enough fabric to cover that canvas and it’s edges, plus a little extra
Flat push pins
The ability to fold
Lay out your fabric on the ground or a large flat surface. Place canvas on top. Cut around this leaving about 3-4 inches extra fabric around the edges for folding.
Iron the fabric so it’s nice and smooth and will lay flat. Place the canvas evenly in the center and beginning folding your corners, wrapping as you would the edges of a present with gift wrap.
When you’ve gotten the fabric to lay as you like, push your pins down.
Hang and bask in your craftiness. Or folding abilities. Or just your abilities to choose aesthetically-pleasing fabric patterns that add to your interiors.
And if you’re feeling crazy–or need a visual change next month–do it all over again with another fabric pattern!
