New Ironing Board Cover

The trouble with lovely fabric is figuring out what to do with it so that you can enjoy it daily. Some fabrics just don't suit clothing and bags are always a great way to enjoy fabric but how many bags does one really need?! Lucky for me, my ironing board cover was looking very tired and Karyn had a really nice tutorial for making your own cover. This fabric is a heavy cotton canvas from IKEA which is working out really well as a cover. It stays in place and I'll wager that it will last longer than a quilt cotton. And as for enjoying this daily? Well, let's just say there's lots of sewing and ironing going on around here - Christmas is coming!! Hello Mr. Fox!
