fabric framing

A while ago I made this carrier bag holder, to hang in the hall in an attempt to remind us to take our own bags with us when we go shopping (it sort of worked – it reminds us to take the ones out of the hall cupboard instead!). I loved the fabric, but only had a limited amount as it came from a car boot sale, so wasn’t really sure what to do with the tiny leftover bit. Not big enough for a cushion cover, not enough to cut into patchwork, I was at a loss until I spied a lone doily sitting on my fabric shelf. ‘Hold on,’ I thought, ‘I might be onto something here….’

    Crafty! I must admit I wasn't convinced when I saw it on its own, but it fits in perfectly with your other pieces – nice work!

    What a great idea. I'm moving in a month and might put aside rental logic and put a whole bunch of holes in the wall to make a wall display. I love the idea of a mix of art forms.
