Ironing--something I love to do if it involves quilting fabric--ironing clothes, not so much! But today I recovered my ironing board in some fabric that might just make me look forward to all ironing--well maybe, maybe not.
The fabric is sew now! sew wow! by Alexander Henry, and after I saw this fabric in Jodi's amazing sewing room I did a little searching on ebay and was able to find some.
Quite a few of you have also recently covered your ironing boards for the first Le Petite challenge--you can see half here on my blog, but be sure to head over to Sinta's blog to see some other great cover-ups! First up is this cover from Liz.
Kim (no blog) added flying geese blocks to her cover and used Fandango by Kate Spain!
Julia made a wonderful red/red polka dot cover--doesn't it look great up against her aqua wall?!
Karen sent in this photo from an ironing board cover-up tutorial she did earlier this year...thanks for the link, Karen!
Jo went the extra mile and recovered two ironing boards--first she made a new cover for her table top board.
Jo's second ironing board cover-up was for her full-size ironing board.
This new cover was made by Brenda (no blog), beautiful fabric!
Anne Ida sent in this "after" photo.
And Cindy made a new reversible ironing board cover--the photo above is side one.
And here is Cindy's side two...love them both, Cindy! Cindy shares her "how-to" directions for these covers here. If I've missed anyone's great cover up...please send an e-mail so I can add you to the parade. Sinta and I will both be choosing winners from our cover-up parades!
I've got some binding to do--and some applique' to finish as well...think this is going to be a hand-stitching weekend--hope you have a wonderful weekend!
