Make Your Own Pin Board

Craft: 

This week I finally got around to 'remaking' my old cork board into a modern pin board for my sewing room. 

This is what my old cork board looked like...not exactly amazing is it? It fell off the wall one night and one of the timber sides broke off and I then banished it to the garage. 


But I was at spotlight and found a lovely dark grey wool felt that was on sale and bought the last of the bolt (just over 70cm) for around $6.


So I attached it over the top of the cork board and attached it using a staple gun.


Next I laid it in a crisscross pattern using a white bias tape across the board attaching each point with a tack. To make sure I got the tape straight I laid it out against my ruler as I attached it and it made it really simple.


I haven't hung it on the wall yet - but it's working pretty well just leaning up behind my work table.
