DIY: Marimekko Skateboard


I’m always on the lookout for new and creative ways to use fabric. I’m not much of a seamstress, so anything that doesn’t require a needle and thread definitely gets my attention. When I came across this DESIGNLOVEFEST blog post, I had to do a double take. Actually, make that a triple take. Blogger Bri Emery, inspired by decorative skateboard decks used as wall art in a little boy’s bedroom, decided to make her own skateboard using Marimekko fabric. How cool is that?

If you’re interested in making your own skateboard, follow Bri’s step-by-step instructions here. If skateboarding isn’t your thing and you’re uncoordinated like I am, skip a few of the final assembly steps and you have yourself an awesome piece of art. We have plenty of Marimekko fabrics to choose from. Check out our selection at AlwaysMod here.  Here are a few of my favorite patterns:
