Do a Google Image search for “Yarn Wreath” and lots of pretty things will come up; Christmas wreaths, colorful spring wreaths, and everything in between. My friend Nichole is a big fan of yarn wreaths and got me interested. I decided to try my hand and create a yarn wreath with felt flowers for my aunt’s new home for Christmas.

If you or a friend are planning on breastfeeding and may want to do so discreetly in public, a nursing cover is a great DIY project. Not too experienced with sewing? The cover is practically just hemming. I made one for a friend and spent about $6 for all the supplies to make one; to buy a cover it can cost on average, $15-$35.
26″X38″ for the cover (you can make larger for older and bigger babies as well)
30″x3″ for one side of the strap
10″X3″ for the other side of the strap
Boning 14″ long
Home Decor Fabrics – Heavy weight and wrinkle resistant

You can also use quilting-type cotton, but keep in mind it may wrinkle easier
Want to do two different fabrics?
Keep the length measurement for both fabrics (38″), split the width measurement (26″) between your two fabrics and add 1/2 inch to both for seam allowances.You can cover the seam that joins the two fabric with ribbon or ric-rac.
