What materials did you use? Old vintage toile fabric samples. The samples were from a Omaha decorator who died. The samples were old and musty, but the patterns were amazing. I'm hoping a day or two on the clothesline, or a few shots of Fabreeze, I'll be able to actually use it! Note to self: wash fabric first.

What are you most proud of? The only material I had to buy was the cotton strapping and metal rings, which totaled only a few dollars! Everything else was scrap, or stuff I had around....

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do it! It was fun, hip and best of all inexpensive. Be creative and take the basic instructions to make it your very own!
