5-Minute DIY! Update any Pillow with Floral Patches

It's strange to see 90s styles coming back to life, but I'm loving the nostalgia it brings and how it's evolved. Patches are back in style but not just the novelty ones you iron onto jean jackets. Today's patches come in so many different styles, including intricate floral applique patches that are often used around clothing necklines. Instead of using those patches for their intended use, I thought they'd be perfect for outlining the corners of a pillow! This project was so easy to make that I finished in just 5 minutes.

Minimal Nursery decor: Make this planetary mobile

As nursery trends change, the traditional pinks and blues are slowly being pushed out in favor of current, updated looks. Parents are experimenting more and more with bolder hues, playful patterns, or simply less of it all. It's easy to see why the minimal nursery look is gaining in popularity. There are fewer elements to worry about, there aren't any color-related gender-indicators (which makes styling ahead of time a breeze), and the color palette is almost non-existent. If you're looking to decorate a minimal nursery or want to give a gift to a no-fuss parent-to-be, you can craft this sweet planetary mobile quickly and easily.

Make This: Crocheted Gender-Neutral Baby Blanket

This project is brought to you by the following joyous news: I'm going to be an aunt! I'm over-the-moon excited, and can't wait to meet my first little niece or nephew. That's right, I said niece OR nephew, and that's because the gender isn't known yet! I'm too excited to wait around to find out whether it's going to be a boy or a girl, and I wanted to get started crocheting a blanket ASAP. I made this gender-neutral baby blanket from a sweet sunflower yellow and cute mint green with alternating white.
