I saw this tutorial a while back and was really excited about starting this project.

And like usual, it got a little out of hand I made a ton, but its fun and quick and simple.

Your fabric is amazing. It would look so cute in a vintage-themed room!

these are too cute. i made some before as well, I also painted the looms with acyrlic paint to make them stand out a bit. I think the ones with birds and cages would look AWESOME like that. (i also have that curtain and am totally in love with the print) you made some kick ass little decorations!

What a great way to show off some fabulous fabrics! (I recognize at least one as being Echino, and a couple of other Japanese designs).

I really have to work on building up a stash of cool fabrics Smiley
