You may recall the strange affair of the Fabric Covered Bulletin Board, a mystery never fully explained. We are told, ladies and gentlemen, that this is the very bulletin board which figures in the famous disaster. Our wiser for wear teacher has restored it, and fitted parts of it with new fabric, so that we may get a hint of what it may look like when fully covered in fabric. Perhaps we may frighten away the board from so many weeks ago with a little illumination! (Ladies and) Gentlemen!
(PS, yes, all from memory. I'm just embracing it at this point.)
PPS: For all my teacher friends out there who may be tape-measure challenged as I apparently am, here's what I did: I bought two yards of the blue polka dots and one yard of the yellow and purple flowers. I cut the polka dots in half and hung them up with staples on the edges first. Then I centered the flowers on top of the polka dots and stapled them up. THEN I rummaged around and found purple edging and edged it up. I thought of hanging up ellison letters for the headings, and then I remembered that I wanted this project to be complete in no more than an hour, so I just printed the signs you can see in the picture. Now nobody can say I never gave an online tutorial.
