a quick before and after

I mentioned previously that I need to feel accomplished when I make things.  Either a meal that turns out yummy or a sense of completion in a sewing project.  Recently I felt a quick win when I finally successfully re-covered my ironing board with- you guessed it- a thrifted vintage sheet!

I wonder what makes those ugly brown stains on ironing boards?

The before photo isn't great, but you get the gist.  Cheap Ikea ironing board, non-standard size, not much padding.

Better already!
And much nicer to look at while ironing!

Oh yes. This will do.
 I love projects that are pretty and functional.
