Long Beach, Cali...
I made over my own ironing board a while back and a friend of mine wanted to follow suit. One weekend full of food and drinks later, she has a brand spanking new board!
She wanted to learn to sew, too, this was a great first project for her :)
Before and afters on my blog, http://www.thesewalongs.com/2011/10/tutorial-iron-board-makeover.html
And original instructions of my board:
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
Member Project of the Week
Short jackets like this zebra print bomber by Anniemollison are a must for spring.
The latest pattern bundle features nine vintage reissues from the 50s and 60s.
Pick one of 5 patterns for a new kind of sew along
