I then used the same fabric to recover an old sleeve board that I had picked up at a garage sale many years ago. Here's that post.
In that second post I mentioned that I had a table top sized ironing board that needed a makeover as well and this past weekend I finally got it recovered as well. Here's how it turned out.
Even after these three projects I still had fabric left over from that original three yards. I was inspired by the 101 One Yard Wonders book to make a roll-up sewing kit to take to simple, out-of the house sewing sessions.
There is an elasticized strip for holding spools of thread, a zippered pocket for scissors, bobbins and such, plus a couple of pockets for needle books and other little bits.
I wish I knew why I bought all that trim! I still have tons of it. Want some?
I am now down to the tiny bits that I can in all honesty put in the dog bed stuffing bag.
Not a one yard wonder by any stretch of the imagination but definitely well-used fabric.
