Swatch Portraits



Here is the beginning of my "swatch portrait" wall, i.e., my favorite fabrics hanging in "frames" made of cheapy wooden embroidery hoops. I wish I could say I invented the idea, but no. I found inspiration in the craft blog world, such as here and here and here. This is an inexpensive and easy way to look at your favorite fabrics every day (which is good when you are obsessed with your fabric, like I am).

Cool idea. Thanks for sharing I usually just pin up swatches, this will look much neater and prettier.

I think I might have to print out this picture for inspiration!

I love this idea, I've seen them a few places too. They are a fun and inexpensive way to decorate the walls!
