So, I am a total impulse pattern buyer, fabric too sometimes though that is usually a little more thought out! :) I bought this ironing board cover pattern because I loved the patchwork sections. There are lots of free tutorials on how to make a new ironing board cover but I have to admit that it was really nice to have full size pattern pieces and all of the measurements worked out. Crazy, I know, I warned you that it was an impulse buy!
I LOVE my new cover!!
It's fun and colorful and makes ironing a little more enjoyable! There are 3 layout options in the pattern and I chose the flying geese.
They look a little wonky in this picture but it's just because I didn't straighten out the cover properly. Oops! It came together really easily, the only thing I changed was that I made the ribbons (you tie the ribbons underneath to cinch up the cover) a little longer so that they didn't get lost in the casing. The hardest part was getting the sucker on my ironing board.
I also made another little fussy cut pencil pouch. These are so fun to make!
Yes, more hand stitches! They are totally addictive and I think the little extra effort really makes it special.
The fabulous Jeannie has requested a tutorial for these pouches. I know there are tons of zipper pouch tutes out there but a request from Jeannie just can't be ignored! :) I will try and have it up sometime next week.
