Vintage fabric wall art



Here's a framed, bigger version of the bookmarks I made. Same instructions to make these: Use Canson self-adhesive paper (Blick stores are the only place I know to find it, where it's on clearance because they bought out another retailer and are trying to get rid of it). Cut shapes in it with an X-acto knife. Peel off the backing, place fabric pieces over the windows you cut, and stick on a second sheet to cover the back. Put it in a frame.

I'm in dire need of affordable, creative and not too complicated to make (I'm not as crafty) wall art. Thank you for this great idea!!!

What a perfect idea for framing fabric remnants. I have some very old quilt blocks from my grandmother that I am never too certain ast o what to do with... this would be so perfect!

Very cute! I wonder if you could use glue and cardstock or even felt instead of the self-adhesive paper. I might have to try it - our walls could use a little fun. Thanks for sharing your craft!

Yeah, I'm too lazy to make a quilt, so this is the next best thing for putting fun fabrics together without spending hours and hours.
