Have you ever wanted to cover up something but didn’t quite know how to do it? Or maybe it’s just that you hadn’t taken the time.
Well, so it was with me.
I have been wanting to make a cover for my sewing machine and ironing board for quite some time, but didn’t really have a pattern and never took the time to figure it out..
This year in our quilt guild monthly meetings we are touring members sewing room. Today was my turn and yesterday I decided to ‘get er done’! Thank goodness for deadlines! lol!
I had a sweet little unfinished vintage table scarf that my cousin, Betty had given me. I thought this little garden gal would make the perfect cover up.
I bought the rosebud fabric last week to make an ironing board cover. I had extra so I decided to use it. The ric rac is vintage. Silly me had a hard time opening the package and using it. I didn’t have a pattern, just looked at one my friend had. It’s not perfect. . .in fact I made it too large so I just took a tuck on each side.
I love this garden gal! And look, a pretty little bird landed by her.
I was on a roll and went ahead and made the cover for my old ironing board.
A lot going on here as far as color and patterns with my sweet hanging thread basket, but you know this girl is eclectic!
How about you, have you covered up anything lately?
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
