Covered up

My ironing board was in desperate need of a new cover for a while and on Sunday evening while enjoying a spot of stash re-organizing I found the perfect fabric for it. I had this Pop-art fabric for a while but have so far only used it for a large zipper bag that holds my quilting rulers and templates.

I bought it last year on a shopping trip with the lovely Terri to 'Fabric Galore'. I just wanted it without any specific project in mind. Meanwhile I had sort of half regretted buying it as I couldn't come up with any good use for it. So you can imagine how pleased I am now that I found the most perfect use for it.

I mean look at it .....I can now almost daily look at Humphrey Bogart and James Dean...... who wouldn't want that. And dear Audrey I am so sorry that you didn't get a prime spot but that Rita and Marilyn know how to get their way....




I used this tutorial for the cover.

  2. Love it! I did the same earlier this year (using Amy Butler home dec that I picked up for £5 m!), I was too embarrassed to take it with me to a sewing evening so had to do it. And then I wondered why I hadn't done it years ago. Enjoy the ironing - if that's possible!

  5. How cool is that! I might even iron something other than quilting stuff if I had an ironing board cover like that ;-)

  9. Oh Judith, I'll happily take some more of that fabric off your hands. I'm very happy to pay, I've had requests from my teenage daughter's friends for that fabric!

Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
