Some areas in your home you may feel are not just fit for a nursery. While others may be in the process of just buying/renting a place but in both cases if you are prepping for an addition to your home a baby boy/girl then this is just the DIY Nursery Makeover tutorial for you.
This DIY chevron and chenille blanket tutorial uses a pre-printed chevron fabric to make this absolutely delightful blanket. It may not be categorized as a ‘quick’ project, but it isn’t terribly complicated. The tutorial demonstrates how to chenille the cotton fabric by cutting the chevrons between the top stitching and then throwing the blanket into the washer and dryer. This effect is nothing less than super cool.
We have quite a large garden in our backyard. What we learned over the years is that it is difficult to control the growth of plants and vegetation without having to micro manage them (trim leaves or remove unwanted growth). We just recently started this neat little trick of using toilet paper rolls to control the flowers before we move them to our garden area or just control the growth all together. Also I figure you can use this same technique with vegetation like lettuce where you do not want all the seeds in one location of the lettuce blocks more lettuce from growing and slowing growth. Give this idea a try and let us know how it goes.
