My laundry room was looking a bit too plain after I stripped the wall paper and took down all my greenery and bird houses. I needed to put something up but didn’t want to spend a lot of money. Red seemed to be the right choice in my mind that would add a pop of color against the sea of beige and brown. I dropped by my local fabric store in search of the perfect red fabric and found three coordinating fabrics that would work perfectly. Then I went to Michaels to try to find something inexpensive to attach it to and ended up with 12” X 28” Styrofoam sheets for about $3 each. Back to the fabric store, (since I didn’t know my end product dimensions) to buy a half yard of fabric at $6 each. I ironed each piece while the glue gun warmed up and this is what the final product turned into.
Where is the third panel, you might ask? Had I made it, it would look something like this.
I didn’t take into account that it had a very specific direction to the print (and I kind of thought that the the flowers looked a little funny laying sideways.) I would have had to buy another yard of fabric to have them lay vertically and I didn’t want to spend that much money so I settled on two panels.
Maybe this fabric will end up as a pillow someday.
