Though I wrote this post back in January, I've been looking forward to linking it up with the Pinterest Challenge going on over at my favourite blog Young House Love. This project wasn't inspired by one particular Pinterest image, but the inspiration definitely came from scoping out lots of felt projects over there! Feel free to post questions and I'll get right back to you! And please follow me on Pinterest (link is on the upper right of your screen.)!

In fact, I'm so happy with it, I want to make one for Charlotte now, too!
