How to Make a Fabric Bulletin Board

" A fabric bulletin board  with  cats background "

I’ve always wanted to give one of these fabric bulletin boards a go but just haven’t gotten around to it. Now, with Amy’s fabulous tutorial over on Sew, Mama, Sew! I have no excuse not to get on the ball, as they say.

Supplies you’ll need to make one:

  • 1 stretched artist canvas, any size
  • 1 piece of background fabric, cut 2 to 3″ wider than the canvas on all sides
  • 1 piece of lightweight quilt batting, cut to the same size as the background fabric
  • Ribbon, 1/4″ to ½” wide (Amy says that the length depends on the size of the canvas we select as well as the number of ‘trellises’ we want)
  • A staple gun

For the entire tutorial, mosey on over to Sew, Mama, Sew!, and check out this poka-dotted bulletin board Amy made featured on her blog butterandsugar.
