New Fabric Art Wall Hanging

I decided it was time to make another wall hanging. The bedroom needed some color, and I'd been meaning to make more of them to put around the apartment, sort of like a collection. Here are some pictures of the processes:

Carpenter Staples
I began by stapling the fabric to the back of a wooden frame.

Fabric Over Frame
I stapled all the way around the whole frame and pulled the fabric tight. When I was done I cut the extra fabric off.

Stretched Fabric
The fabric is really stretched tight around the frame so that it doesn't sag.

The finished panel is now hanging in our bedroom above the dresser. In this picture it looks off center, but it is really hanging centered above the dresser.
