Fabric as art

I fell in love with this fabric on a shopping trip with a friend. As soon as I saw it, I thought it was so beautiful it should be hung on the wall, almost like a tapestry. So I bought a few yards and stretched it over a large canvas I bought at an art supply store, stapling around the edges. It hangs in my breakfast nook and goes perfectly with the red table and benches I made (with a little help from some friends). I had a little fabric left over, so I used it to make a cushion for one of the benches.
I thought I'd share this because it was such an easy way to create a unique piece of art. Something to keep in mind next time you're perusing fabric...
