* marimekko DIY wall hanging

Posted on December 14th, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

Becket has a really cool Marimekko wall hanging in her place. I don’t want to be a total copycat, plus I don’t have nice tall ceilings like her, so I settled for this DIY version made from a Marimekko dish towel and some stretcher bars. For my artichoke napkin panels I bought the stretcher bars online somewhere, but recently I noticed that they carry them at Michaels, waaaaay in the back. I found the dish towel at this cool modern home store in Ithaca (I was visiting to give a seminar). I also found a fantastic antiques store with a treasure trove of old buttons, linens, and all sorts of great stuff. I didn’t realize why all the fuss about bakelite buttons until I saw them in person, and suddenly they were worth $3.50 each.

    I’m not rushing you to blog it, but has your ornament arrived (shipped last Friday), if not there is still time for me to replace it ;-)
