Dry Erase Board

I recently saw this on A Feathered Nest and thought that it would be a lot of fun to make one. We really needed a place in our kitchen where we could write down phone numbers, reminders, things to buy, etc.. So today I got out some old frames from underneath our bed and looked in my fabric stash for some fabric. I came up with this...

It was such a fun and easy project! From start to finish it took me about 5 minutes! The tutorial can be found HERE. Now I cannot wait to get it on my wall and start using it!

PS: If you decide you want to make one I would suggest using lighter colored fabrics so that your dry erase marker shows up better. It is a little difficult to see my black marker on top of the black parts of my fabric. Even still I love my new decorative dry erase board.

Nursing Cover

I am working my way back into crafting. And more especially I am working my way back into blogging about my crafting. Last year I made this nursing cover for a friend:

I used THIS tutorial! I finally decided I would make one for myself because the one I have is not very large and my little guy is getting bigger. I love how it turned out. I actually bought some other fabric and will be making one more! I love having options and things that match different outfits. Lets face it, a girl has got to match!
