So - what do you do with several yards of ugly stuff?
I think it makes a decent ironing board cover. Now that I am looking at the photo I see that I could have done a better job of centering the fabric's design. In making the cover, I used my rolled hem foot for the first time. I have been sewing for over 40 years and had never even attempted to use that foot. It is a little tricky getting started but I love the finish on the edges!
You may have noticed the strange feet on my ironing board. It was my grandmother's. It is very sturdy, has a solid wooden top and a metal frame. I love it because it belonged to my grandmother. I just wish it didn't weigh so much!
