True Colors Project WIP

Thank you for all the amazing suggestions on what to create with my True Colors fabric.  They were so inspiring and helped get my scissors moving!  Actually, Linda was on the right track with her comment of creating something I would use everyday.

So what did I make you ask….. Well, I decided to recover my ironing board.  Since I use it every time I sew and knew that the fabrics would always be front and center.

There is no real magic formula here, I used my old cover as the template.  Heck, I even reused the elastic! Talk about a reclaiming project.  Things got a little messy for me during the binding process.  I have no clue what happened but even though I wrote down the correct width for my bias, I still marked and cut it 1/2″ narrow in the width. Oh well, things happen and I made it work by trimming down my seam allowance.  Remember, measure twice and cut once!!

  1. A new ironing board cover – now that’s something I need. How did I manage to get so much sticky interfacing on the old one?

    • Funny Deby! The ironing board is something we use almost everyday and never think twice about. Mine had a terrible brownish stain on it and markings from fusible interlining so, it was totally time for a makeover. I am loving the way it turned out!
