Textile Art

In my never ending quest for unique and cheap art to fill the walls of our home, I stumbled upon yet another nifty idea.  I bought a frame/mat combo recently at Michaels that was on sale for $9.  After being inspired by an easy art project on the super creative blog "Nalle's House",check out that blog post here, I decided to re-purpose something I already had on hand into art.  I had some left over fabric from making a headboard a couple years back.  The left over roll of material was just taking up room in my closet.  I took the fabric out an decided to put it in my new frame for some easy textile art.  This fabric is by the Momentum Textile Group and is called "Telegram, color: Chocolate".  You can check out all of the fabric details by clicking here.

Slowly but surely, the walls of the house are starting to get filled, which makes it feel more like home.

Here is a picture of the space before the art (area to right of bookcase and left of laundry room door).

Here is the space now (sorry this is a different view, but it hard to get pictures in this room without a lot of glare).

Have you framed anything unusual lately?  I would love to hear about it.
