I’m excited to announce I’ve joined a group of talented bloggers in a 12 Months Of DIY Challenge! I’m jumping in a bit late, so for me it’s more like a 6 Months Of DIY Challenge. But no matter – there will still be lots of fun crafting going on around here in the next little while.

I love group projects like this for so many reasons. Primarily, they keep you honest. There’s nothing like a group of like-minded people to keep you on track when you want to get something done. I’ve been a little low in the DIY department lately, what with odds and ends like kids, job, and life in general. But I do miss it, and sometimes I just need to get making, so this will give me some fun inspiration. There’s something about the synergy you can get with a group that makes the whole experience more than the sum of it’s parts. You know what I mean?

The best part? You can join in, too! Here’s how it works. There’s 12 bloggers working with a different material each month. Each month we’ll share our challenge on our instagram accounts (you can find me under Lifeovereasy). Just make your own DIY using the material specified and post your image with the hashtag #12MonthsOfDIY by the end of the month. We’ll vote for a winner and feature that image on all our Instagram accounts. Fun, right?

Let’s get started. This month’s challenge is felt, and I’ll be working with The Kunin Group Eco-fiPlus™ Premiumfelt. It’s a high quality 8 oz felt that’s made from recycled plastic bottles. Very cool!

I’m not very experienced with working with felt, and at first I was a little stumped. After some research, I found there’s so much you can do with it – as you can see by the amazing projects the group came up with. It’s a very forgiving material to work with. It’s easy to cut, doesn’t fray, and holds it’s shape. It’s actually super easy for little hands to manage, and perfect if you’re looking for a fun project for a young crafter.

I decided to make some cute notebook covers for me and my girls. It’s a super easy and inexpensive project. I started with some dollar store notebooks. These had covers that were a little stiff so they held their shape really well. I just cut a rectangle out of the felt using the notebook as a guide, folded the ends over the notebook to make flaps, and sewed the flaps closed along the top. I cut a few heart designs using cookie cutters for the shape, in contrasting colours of felt for fun. The finishing touch was a little colourful embroidery floss for the sewing, just for an added pop of colour. That’s pretty well it!

One important tip. Before you cut your felt, you have to think about how you’re going to stitch the top and leave a little extra felt if you need it for the seam across the top. I used a weird stitch I just made up that crossed from the front to the back, so I was able to cut the felt to the exact size of the book. If you’re going to use something like a blanket stitch or an overcast stitch, be sure to leave an extra ¼ inch for the seam.
