Happy New Year! Mr. Wonderful was on vacation for the last several weeks and that means very little sewing has happened. I had scheduled all my blog posts ahead, but have not kept up with responding to comments. Here is a project he helped me with while he was off.
I’ve been using a couple of these flannel design wall sheets from Fons and Porter here in AZ.
But I like being able to pin things to my design wall and I wasn’t happy with how flimsy these felt. So I finally got around to replacing them with help from Mr. Wonderful.
We bought two 8 foot lengths of this extruded plastic trim from Home Depot and screwed them to the wall 7 feet apart.
I covered each of two one inch thick pieces of foam insulated board with Warm and White batting. I stretched it and held it in place with pins, then I used duct tape to secure it to the back of the board.
Next I added two inch wide strips of Self Adhesive Velcro to the trim pieces on the wall and on the back of my foam sheets.
This is the Velcro I used.
Time to hang them up!
Now I just need a step stool to reach the top. 😁
I used the trim pieces so I didn’t have to stick the Velcro directly to the wall board.
I hope this helps if you need to make a design wall. Have a great day!
