Home Ec has been really fun so far. We are blazing through project after project and soon we will be to the stuff that I'm super excited about!
I wasn't going to do the ironing board cover right away. I had doubts that I would find fabric that I like well enough. But while I was at the store picking up a remnant for something else, I spied these FREAKING CUTE owls in the stuff-we-just-got-in cart. So I snatched up 2 yards. I used 1 on this project, and now I still have 1 more. So glad I splurged on this. It totally makes ironing an ok thing.
These are quilted pot holders. Loved the fat quarters I picked out for them. Not so excited about how they turned out. I forgot to pick up the batting that goes in the middle, but I had a large piece of flannel that I used instead. I might like them better with the more fluffy interior. These are about 8″ square so I have plenty of material in these patterns if I wanted to try it again.
I've skipped a project or two, which I'm really ok with. I've read the instructions and they aren't things I haven't done before. Plus, I don't really need a baby bib. 🙂 And, I'm saving the curtains for next summer. Or sooner if things fall into place. But I'm not in a hurry to make those. 🙂
