Here is what I made yesterday: a new cover for my ironing board. The old one got lost in the move--I don't know how your stuff gets loaded onto a truck at your old house and when the truck gets to your new house, some of the stuff is gone! I mean, why not take the whole ironing board if you're going to steal my stuff, not just the cover! I digress, anyway, I have been going round and round with myself for the last 5 months, since the naked ironing board arrived, whether to make or buy a new one. There are all these great tutorials out there, like this one and this one. I don't know why it took me so long; I just needed to decide to do it. So I did...yesterday...finally...and I love it. In the end, I read the tutorials and then did my own thing. The bright fabric is from Ikea in Heidelberg, Germany--I had used it for my daughter's room when we lived there years ago and I was about to give it away. I'm so glad I didn't because it's a nice reminder of the years we spent there, and I didn't spend a dime to make it. Yay!
