How embarrassing is this??? Yep. It’s my ironing board cover. I really can’t believe that I have let it get this bad…but it is.
I am sure others of you have ironing boards that need a little sprucing up. Want to make a challenge and get ourselves some ambition to get a cover made?? Well I have a couple things left over in my prize box that I am willing to share with you if you want to play along…..
Does this entice you??
It’s a layer cake all rolled up nice and neat.
How about I give you two weeks from today to spruce up that ironing board of yours. It could be a small one like mine or a large one.
If you are a blogger, I’ll have linky party here for you to link up on the 18th. If you are not a blogger and want to play along send me a picture to my email and I’ll include it here in the blog post that day. If you are using that method please get them sent to me by the 16th so I have time to get the pictures formatted and into a blog post.
If we have over 10 people playing along I’ll add another prize…not sure what yet but something fun.
Making a cover is very easy. You can just take your current cover off, iron it flat then lay it out on new fabric. Trace around it leaving amply room to turn over an edge and make a casing. Sew the case down and put a string or elastic through the casing and pull it up tight.
If you’re not a fly by the seat of your pants gal like me…no worries. Fat Quarter shop has a cute pattern for an ironing board cover.
Here’s my email address….send me a picture of your refurbished ironing board!! firstname.lastname@example.org .
