Last week, Randi introduced her 2nd Fresh Squeezed Sew Along for 2012: an ironing board cover. This was definitely something that could stand to be redone in my house. Mine was stained, and when I took off the cover, it tore around the edges of the ironing board. After finally deciding on fabrics (the hardest part of it all), I sewed it up in a few hours. I made a new cotton padding (the existing one was pitifully thin) also following Randi's advice. I think, however, I will make a new cotton padding with thicker cotton so it's a bit more cushiony. Now...if only I would use the iron more often...
In fact, my 2nd son even asked me once in all seriousness and with such incredulity when he spotted me ironing, "You know how to use that thing?"
(fyi - my husband irons in our house unless it's sewing related or he's pressed for time)
Who irons in your house?
