Projects 1-3 were clothing items for children No.'s 3 and 4. I'll show picks of them in due time, but right now I am more excited about this one. My old, cheapo ironing board cover was rust stained, chocolate stained, ripped, and even CUT, plus it was not made big enough to hang on to the ironing board in the first place. A good, deep dig in the scrap box revealed a wild tropical print which my modest children could not fathom WEARING in ANY way, ever, not even when they are in their sixties and 60 lbs overweight and in desperate need of a colorful muumuu. I can't understand this lack of prudence on their part. The wild stuff was cut up for a new ironing board cover. I also cut an old mattress pad to add in there for more padding. That stuff is great for emergency batting!
See how well it camouflages my scissors? Great. I will be spending even more time looking for them. And the pins, and etc. :) Wild as it is, this is a huge improvement, don't you think?
And hey, look how effective that reflective tape is on Alie's backpack. The "a" is another project. More about that later!
