I need to make a design board, or rather my DH is going to make me a design board. Could you tell me how you all made your DW. and if you used flannel or felt? Thanks for the info.

I made mine by tacking off-white or ivory flannel to the wall using staples and then made a border around entire piece using strips of trim boards purchased from home improvement store. I love it.

It's going to be a while till I have a sewing studio but I definately will use your room as inspiration.. I never thought of have a white and dark design board.

I have off white flannel on one wall, and it works great!
