Here is how it looked before:
The problem was that in the current state, it required three nails to hang it on the wall, otherwise it drooped in the center.
Since someone before me had sewn the very top over about an inch, I was able to grab a stick from the yard to slide through. It now hung perfectly from the string and stayed flat (and required only one nail to hang it up).
The next little bohemian upgrade was to tie some feathers to the bottom.
I laid the feathers out in a pattern that I liked, and then tied them evenly spaced across the bottom fringe. To do this, I took two strings from the fringe and double knotted them around each feather.
I would describe the look of this piece as a cross between a dream catcher and a weaving, with vintage style.
After it was finished, it was time to decide where to hang it! I opted for the spot above my side of the bed, next to my other little textile art that you can read how to make here. I already had a nail there, so it was perfect. The two look really cute together and give my bedroom space the boho vibe I love.
Kilim and vintage fringed throw pillows also add to the bohemian ambiance in the room.
Till next time...
