Woven Fabric Wall Art

Awhile back, my lovely Momma gave me some fabric samples that she had received. They were pretty good sized, I'd say 18-20" squares. I was going to try and make some pillows with them, but since I'm so challenged in the sewing area I decided to try and figure out a no sew option way to use them. This is what I came up with, I'm calling it "woven wall art". Catchy title, huh? I used a wooden stretcher, I got mine at IKEA and just stapled the fabric directly to it. To cut the fabric I did use fabric shears, but I didn't measure or even cut all that straight (although I did try, kinda).

I tried to pull colors from the pictures that I hung below it. In all actuality the prints were really easy to work with, because they had a pretty varied palate. I am really happy with the all over look, simple and kinda "rustic". At least that is what I'm going to tell myself.

One of the reasons I varied the width of the fabric strips was because I wanted to make sure the weave was pretty full and didn't have any gaps. We have an old thermostat control on the wall that I wanted to cover up, so this project worked really well for that!
