Vintage Fabric Art!

Welcome! I’m glad you’re here! If you’re new I’d so love for you to follow my posts by Email or RSS (your reader). Let’s connect on Facebook & Twitter too!


I love fabric…and if it’s vintage fabric, I can hardly resist.

Have you ever seen a vintage table cloth or pillow case that was stained? If it’s a good price buy it!  You can do all sorts of things with unstained parts…pillows, table runners, quilt squares and…this little project!

This is the easiest, quickest project ever…

I had an old frame sitting around…I painted it and sanded the edges.

I used All-Purpose Spray Adhesive and heavy card-stock for a backing…

Spray the card stock with the adhesive on the front side and smooth fabric to stick.

Then turn it over and spray the back and just wrap the fabric around tight…like wrapping a present!

Pop them into your frame and WaaaLaaa!

I knew the perfect place for this…don’t you love this vintage pink phone??? My daughter and son-in-law gave it to me for Christmas…oh how I love it.

  18. LOVE this idea!!! I have an entire room full, literally huge piles, of vintage fabric to go thru, and I not had a clue what to do with all of it! I even found a phone like that, only it is the kind that doesn’t hang on the wall and it is a pretty light blue color. You have inspired me so! I now have an idea of how I can use some of these old items! I may be sending some your way! :) Where do you get all of your gorgeous old windows?

  26. I stumbled across your site while looking for painted furniture finishes (I have chairs that need help) and I love your ideas! I am addicted to vintage pillowcases and linens but didn’t know what to do with them (besides use them for their intended purpose). We just moved into a house built in 1884 and this picture frame/fabric idea will be perfect for our bedroom. So happy to have found your blog!!

    PS- loved the ruffled t-shirt idea too

  27. We bought the old homeplace and tore down grannies old home and I saved one window, and this gives me a great idea! Thanks for sharing, I’m visiting from Dittle Dattle, I’m your newest follower, hope you’ll visit LazyonLoblolly.

  28. I love this! Been thinking about a similar project for my daughter’s room, but needed that extra inspiration! I’m a new follower! I would be honored if you would visit me at:

  30. I really like the way you think woman! new fan- I put ya on my google reader so I won’t miss anything you get up to – I finally have added a DIY tab on my blog because I am always up to something & I might as well blog about it! I’m a homeschool mommy blogger- Love Love the “1000 Gifts” book you are advertising – beautiful poetry for the heart.
    About the windows- I have a whole stack in my garage that came out of an old island house (Boca Grande, FL) they are very special to me & I love your fabric idea- I’m even thinking I might use corkboard behind the fabric (take out the glass) and use it with push pins for homeschool or craft notes! I’ll let ya kow what I end up doing with them- thanks for the brilliant suggestion!

  2. Vintage Fabric as Art…

    Find a multi-pane mini-window/picture frame and fill it with fabric.  Of course you could use new fabric from the store but it’s much more fun to poke around thrift stores and consignment shops for curtains, table cloths or clothing that may not be……
