For my birthday, Alexis sent me some gorgeous fabrics from IKEA. The great thing about receiving fabric as a gift is that is takes me out of my comfort zone. It is a different weight than I usually buy and definitely different colors that I usually go for but I LOVE it. I was able to get really creative, knowing I wanted to use at least some of it for something I would keep. I have been meaning to make a cover for this ugly ironing board and taaaadaaa....my sewing machine was looking so neglected...well, I just couldn't help myself.
