Why not give your Mom a unique decorative fabric panel to hang on her wall for a Mother's Day gift; some added embellishments gives it a nice personal touch.

Step 1: Materials:

I picked up some fabric from the "remnants" pile at a fabric store, which cost about $5 with enough left over to make a second panel. The picture frame was just $1.25 at a dollar store. The beads, thread, and buttons I had lying around at home, making this a fairly inexpensive project (shh, don't tell Mom it was so cheap!)

  • Pretty fabric
  • Picture frame (I used a certificate frame, 8.5X11in)
  • Thread, needle, scissors
  • Buttons, beads, ribbon, lace, embroidery thread, grommets (what ever you can think of to add to your fabric).

You can make these as large or small as you'd like; poster size would look great, or how about several small matching 5X7in frames.
Fabulous creation! Great work, like the pattern and colors!
Thanks, I was really happy I found this fabric.
I like this a lot! Going to try it next week! :-)
This was not a "cheap" gift - you are very talented
Love the fabric. Does it have a name? I'd love to find something similar.
It is called Dharma/Hip by Robert Allen, here is a link:<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.robertallendesign.com/trade/fabric_detail.aspx?product=128852">http://www.robertallendesign.com/trade/fabric_detail.aspx?product=128852</a><br/><br/>I bought it from a fabric store that deals mostly with upholstery fabric.<br/>
very awesome! you taught me how to do a french knot :) I love your work
I did something like this without the embellishments. I like what you did!<br/><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-esthetic-jewelery-storage/">http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-esthetic-jewelery-storage/</a><br/>
Cool project, using ceiling tiles is a great idea and a nice way to store jewelry.
