Made on Monday #19 - gingham and red ribbon pin board revamp

It was time for a change in my study and the pin board is always my first port of call when re-designing. This time I have felt all 'little red riding hood' and went for a classic combination of Gingham and ribbon.
This is how I did it.

First I cut the fabric to about one inch bigger than the pin board.
 Then I stretched the fabric and stapled it all around

 Then I added cross strips of red ribbon. Weaving them over each other to give added strength and stapled them at the back
