Hope you all are having a fabulous Monday morning. I woke up this morning bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to take on the day.
And what a day it's going to be.
My sister and I decided a trip to Ikea was in order after our beloved Green Bay Packers were unable to win their playoff game yesterday - - a devastating defeat for us.
So this morning, off we'll go to Ikea for a little retail therapy. LOL.
Before we head out I thought I'd show you a quick project I finished this past weekend for my studio space.
I have big plans for lots of sewing projects coming up so I thought it was time to make myself a tabletop ironing board - - digging out my full sized version is always a pain and no matter where I set it up it always seems in the way.
Here's how it turned out - - don't you just love it!
When I'm not using it I plan to simply lean it up against my workstation and it can double as a decorative piece to make the space more "me".
I made it nice and big so as to have plenty of space iron on.
Look how perfect it works . . . wish I would have done this years ago.
Very simple to make,
I took a big piece of plywood cut to the size I thought looked good. Two layers of quilt batting, and then my decorative sugar sack for the top fabric.
Starting with my top fabric, I laid it on the floor - right side down, layered the quilt batting on top and then layered the piece of plywood on top.
Using my trusty staple gun I then pulled all the fabric to the back side of the plywood and stapled the fabric in place.
The last step was to add some rubber feet to help protect my work surface.
I thought about maybe covering up the staples with some sort of trim but once I had the feet on it I didn't think it was necessary.
I love how it turned out and can't wait to use it on my next quilting project.
