    Hi everyone!

    I discovered you can iron fusible web to a wall! My nursery border is fabric and paper backed fusible ironed onto the wall to form a "wallpaper" border. It was SOO easy! Baby Malachi's (due any day!) nursery is in navy/white/NY Yankees.

    I also used fabric and fusible for my thank you cards--they were baby feet ironed onto plain card stock. I've gotten rave reviews for them!

    just thought I would pass on this amazing discovery--maybe others already know about it, but I didn't!!

    Great idea - now I wonder how hard it will be to remove in years to come.

    It peels right off--I tried it in the closet before I painted. I hate to paint and didn't want to damage the walls in any way! Also, I knew then to put it up high so little fingers couldn't "pick" at it.

    Well, if it's easy to remove, I'm up for it. I love the look of borders, but hate removing them when I'm tired of looking at them.

    What a cool idea!! I've got some border that doesn't want to stay up no matter what I try but I'd never thought about fusing it. I'll try it the next time it decides to come down.

    I have vowed NEVER to wallpaper again. I hate spending BIG bucks and after 2 weeks it starts to fall off the wall. Obviously not doing something right, so I decided to try this. I used fabric and fusible from my stash, so it costs me nothing. Cut the shapes with my die cut machine--took me about 15 minutes. Took me about 2 hours to iron it to the wall, though. Moving furniture, and climbing on ladders 9 mo. pregnant is not easy! I've had it up about 3 weeks and so far so good. I like that I can peel it off with no damage and try something else (AKA when Malachi is 10 and likes the Boston Red Sox instead of Yankees!).

    Oh, boy, I love this idea! I actually enjoy painting walls (makes everything so nice and clean), but this would certainly takes things to another level. Thanks for the tip! I think I'll try it next time I decide to paint something!

    What a great idea!! Did you ever get the curtains made for the room? I remember your post several months back about the design for the team. I sent you a pm of material I had available free and didn't hear from you. Good luck on your upcoming bundle of joy!!
