Handmade Christmas, part II

This project was actually a Christmas present for me. :)

A while ago I saw this tutorial for sewing your own ironing board cover and saved it in my "ideas" folder. It looked so easy, and my ironing board definitely needed a face-lift! Then a few days later I found some really cute material on the remnants table at the fabric store. And now, several months later, I finally took the time to make it into this:

It turns out that the hardest part was getting everything together and taking the time to make it - so glad I did! :)

The ironing board cover takes 2 yards of fabric and about an hour to complete (or longer if you get interrupted;)). Basically, if you have a sewing machine, iron and ironing board and some basic sewing skills, you can make this!

Hmm, maybe I'll make a few more as Mother's Day gifts?


I'm posting a link to this on a few of these blogs.

I have a ton of projects in my 'idea folder'. So glad you got one done! It looks darling. Those pretty flowers might make me enjoy ironing. (and I stress, 'might'!)

Now why didn't I think of this? My ironing board is just hideously ugly, and I use it every day. Gotta have a pretty one now that I've seen yours!
