Hello friends. I've been wanting to make some custom fabric wrapped panels for my kitchen that I can pin photos and invitations on for a long time. Even though I love my stainless steel refrigerator, it just doesn't have enough space for all the things I want to stick to it. So, I'm going to create a little display area where I can put all these things instead.
First step, selecting fabrics. I brought home a bunch of fabric samples from work to see what colors work best. I wanted to select a variety of colors, but in a neutral palette so the photos and invites can still shine. I don't want it too look too busy when the photos are tacked onto the fabric.
These are the fabrics I picked, each in a different texture and sheen:

They match well, don't ya think?
Next, I ordered large size swatches that I can cut up and wrap in different size panels. I scored these from work from my favorite textile vendor - Luna, but you can easily buy fabric scraps at Joannes on Etsy.

I can't wait to complete this project. Stay tuned!
