Day #25 was when I finally tackled something I've been meaning to do for a long time.
I've had this Marimekko Kaivo fabric for a while. It's one of those iconic things you see around for years, then finally get a chance to buy when you find it on sale, then have no idea what to do with.
I hung mine on our basement family room wall above the sectional. It looks great there, but my hanging methods left something to be desired.
I just stuck it on with thumbtacks like it was a cheesy dorm room poster.
The solution was pretty easy. I sewed four hanging loops out of black fabric I had lying around.
Then I folded them over and sewed them to the top edge of the Marimekko fabric.
I used a cheap little curtain rod from IKEA to hang it up. It's actually hanging two inches out from the wall now, which I like better.
Is it weird that I left the selvedge edge showing? I love to see the name and copyright on fabrics, no matter who the designer is.
There you have it. I think this is much better than the other way.
