I haven’t had much time lately for a big project but have managed to squeeze in a few little ones. This is one project I completed (there is something to be said for completing something) and I’ll post about another one in the next day or so.
My ironing board cover had seen better days. I’ve washed it to the point the stains weren’t coming out and it was getting pretty thin. I have an extra wide board so you can’t just find covers anywhere and if you do the print just didn’t do it for me. It didn’t make me all happy inside. I absolutely do NOT like to iron. However, I don’t like wrinkles either so I do iron and need all the help I can get to feel a little happiness in the process.
Here’s the before..boring!
I made my own pattern. It wasn’t too tough.
The challenge was finding something wide enough and long enough without having to tape a bunch of paper together. I asked DH for a suggestion and out he came with a roll of Tyvec left over from building the house. It worked wonderfully. I highly suggest it.
And here is the after. Ironing is a much happier place for me now. It doesn’t take much for me. I really am an easy keeper.
btw – not my toys. I share my sewing room with the grands, a sacrifice I am more than willing to make.
So, what are your feelings on ironing? I have a friend who loves to iron. How about you? Love it, tolerate it or hate it?
