Using liquid starch to affix fabric to walls and furniture is a technique we sometimes forget about, but not only is it easy to do, but it's easy to undo which is important for renters or, in Cheryl's case, when changing a nursery or room from one child to another. Visit Cheryl at Sew Can Do for the astonishingly simple instructions.
