Sewing what??? Covers.

My ironing board had seen better times.. it was really sad and plain and something you dont display or show your guests, or anybody... But instead of putting it out in the rain, I found a super easy makeover tutorial that might and could extend the life of the plain ironing board here and here.



 
And tadaaaaaa... My ironing board is now the centre of attention.. hehehe



And while I was at it, I made a sewing machine cozy for my Singer using similar fabric (my favourite). I got my inspiration from here, here and here.



Happy Monday!!

Sue, i like the piping on the sewing machine cosy. did you insert cording in it?

tapi kan.. fabrik ni memang cantik..kalo i mesti i dah framekan sebab sayang nak potong..hihi

My Botang said...

Dura,thanks, no cording, actually i malas nak jahit tepi, so i made a bias tape to cover the seams :D
I've made few frames for friends using this faby.. i should make one for myself kan.. since this fabric is no longer in print..
