Fabric Walls ~ Fabric Floors
I found these wonderful cotton fabrics, at a thrift shop. I was thinking of using the one on the left, for a wall covering, in my Early 1900's house and the one on the right could possibly be used for a bedroom, even for the floor. Can anyone give me pointers on applying fabric wall and floor coverings? I'm thinking Modge Podge, or the equivalent, for those not familiar with this brand of decoupage medium. Throw your two cents worth in >>>HERE! ;)

Beautiful fabrics, I used wallpaper paste when I used fabric as wallpaper in an old house it worked well

When I've used fabric for "papering" rooms I've backed it onto acid free thin card, securing it to the card at the back with some sort of adhesive, and then either pinned it into the room, or wedged it in if it's cut accurately enough. I usually use acid free double sided tape, as it's easy, but you could also use an adhesive suitable for fabric. This way, you don't damage the house and can easily remove it at a later date if you want to.

Would it be easier to paste the fabric to card and then stand/attach to walls?

I know Pat Cutforth used fabrics as wallpaper, I will consult her book for you!

Oh, that would be wonderful! I am thinking, for some reason, that I may work better, with fabric, as opposed to, paper.
