Damn college kids...
|My new workspace.|
Meh, whatever works I suppose.
My first order of business was to make a new ironing board cover. Mine was, as you will see from the step by step, in dire need of some love. uHandbag has an awesome tutorial for making one using your old IBC, with whatever yardage you have kicking around that just isn't ever going to get used.
First step, iron the ironing board cover. *head explodes* Ok, just use towels so you don't set anything on fire.
|The poor thing.|
|Jess is still amazed I haven't set it on fire yet.|
Cut the ring out, starting on the inside of the cover so you don't cut through the string. You'll be left with something like the following:
Then you cut out your new ironing cover! I went with some Kona cotton that's been kicking around forever; I love the blue, but I just can't ever find anything to use it with. So, IBC! Cut out a new cover using the remnants as a template, leaving a generous 1 inch margin all around.
|As you see.|
Throw that sucker on your ironing board and tie it tight. Presto! You have a lovely new ironing board cover!
|Is so blue.|
|So pretty. And accurate too!|
