It’s the weekend! Bring on the cleaning supplies, piles of laundry , and motivation! You might notice that your home is begging for the deep clean it deserves after a long week of neglect. Now, we know housework isn’t on the top of the list as a fun project to tackle, but it must be done. We have a fun weekend project that is sure to get you in the mood to take some of those wrinkled and long forgotten clothes out from the back of the closet and give them life again. We are feeling inspired to take on our to-do’s with this cheery ironing board cover by Jessica Abbott from MeSewCrazy. Although the fabric used in this below photo is called “Marine Wedding Rings from Quilt Blocks” from Moda Fabrics, you can use any cotton fabric and this project becomes instantly customized to your unique style.
