new fabric door

It is getting very very nippy around this neck of the woods
... perfect time for making and creating... we have being busy - trying to get our house sort of finished for Christmas .. there has being lots of odds and ends to finish off .. There was a very boring door opening into our hot cupboard in the bathroom .. we were trying to find a replacement but it is so narrow .. and working out quite expensive .. I thought I don't want anything fancy - just something nice
So I remembered ages ago reading an article about covering walls in fabric ..I kind figured that you could cover any thing really ..all I really needed was ... fabric - which I had an abundance of .. starch and a little bit of patience..I googled and found the link that I was looking for here and away I went .... to be honest find the starch was the hardest thing .. but I knew that it was better to do that than just stapling it on to get a nice smooth finish.. and I also wanted to be able to pin my brooches into it as well.. so this is what my door looks like now .. what do you fancy covering in your house .. no moving creatures please .. ie dogs .. or hubbies


  1. Looks brilliant! I need to cover all the piles of 'stuff' we have lying around waiting to be packed up for our new house. I think it will look like we are having Christmas in a warehouse!

  2. Hi It look fab. I'm sure that orange is the new black! I have lots of things I'd like to cover, the biggest being an old bean bag. But most of all I need to cover over the TV - then I would get more sewing done!
