So, as I have told you earlier one of my very best friends is having a little baby girl. And guess what, she has arrived, the cutest most perfect little baby girl ever! This is the same friend I arrange a baby shower for, you can take a look here. I decided that I wanted to give her something special for the baby, something for the nursery. So I made her this cute board! It is very easy to make and I want to share with you how to do it!
Then cut the fabric to a suitable size,make sure to have enough to fold over:
Cut the wadding so it fits the board:
Then lay it all upon each other, fabric, wadding then the board. Make sure the cork side is facing the right way:
Then you fold the fabric and stitch it on the back of the board. Make sure you do it tight:
So far, so good:
Now, its time for the ribbons:
Then stitch it on the back of the board:
Then stitch a cross where the ribbons crosses, this is to make the upholstery look:
And last, but not least, glue on the buttons to cover up the stitches:
And there you go, a cute DIY board!
I also made this board. This one was a birthday gift for one of my other best friend. On this one I used furniture nails instead of buttons to rough it up a little bit.

So, hope this inspired you a bit. Maybe you will make one your self. And one more thing, I think this also would be a great headboard, only a bit larger off course.
