For a couple of reasons, we had to take down the closet doors in the nursery. I knew I could pull off making some fabric "doors" by using drapery clips, a closet rod and the iron on hem tape.

I bought two coordinating fabrics, one for each panel. After making the first one, I realized I didn't like the two together, and just went and bought more of the first fabric to make the other panel.

However, I've now got three yards of a super cute fabric that's already been washed, so I can't return it. And I have almost no sewing skills (I can reattach a button or mend a small hole, but that's about it). What should I do with the leftover fabric? It's a "baby" print (blue with some bubbles and giraffes) and it would work in the room, but I have no idea what to do with it. Thoughts?

You could make a pouch to hold things using fabric tape. Or, you could attach the fabric to something else, put it around a bin, cover an old pillow with it, something like that. Fabric can be very decorative over things, and that requires no sewing!!

The only other thing I can think of that Amber hasn't mentioned is a memory board. I did a quick search on how to make a memory board and this one came up
