    Joanne, check out the sewkatiedid blog. Under her tutorials she shows a roll up possibility.

The other one is 3 x 6 that fits there as well. I then covered them with fleece that I purchased from Joann's. I love them. Especially since they only cost me about $5.00
    I have no place to store it. The only full walls are taken and have baseboard heating so putting anything in front of them isn't good. I have a 4 foot section of wall that is available and that is all that is left.

Install the window shade (they roll up, okay??) and spray it with . . . whatever they call that spray . . . adhesive and then put either flannel, batting, . . . what else (girlie friends???) and WALLAH you have a pull-down space to use . . .
    LOLOLOLOL I WISH I could say I don't remember but next week I turn the big 5-0. I remember them all too well. You think it will roll up with the bulk of the batting?

The one I have might be a little lighter weight than the table cloth fabric but the plus side is.......it already has the grommets for hanging and a 2 inch grid pattern on the back that shows through. The flannel on it is thin but it does hold well. I put a whole pal size top on it and it held in place. I have some pictures in my albums that show the design wall.
    I love your wall! I wish JoAnn's would let me use a 40% off coupon. Says right on the coupons that excluded is Fons and Porter. I think it's about $25.

    I didn't think about batting. I can get a twin size roll of 80/20 for about $10-$11. I might just have to pull out the ol' Hobby Lobby phone app coupon and get some.

    So does fleece hold them as well as flannel?

    Re: Design Wall Question

    I use "Cheryl Ann's design wall" and I love it because it is free standing and I can move it around as needed. I leave designs up on it and change the arrangements until I love it and am ready to sew together. I have the largest 6 feet by 6 feet, but it comes in smaller sizes depending on space. They have a web site by the same name.

    The Fons and Porter has a Gris on the back. I haven't needed to use it though.
