t.v. tray



T.V. tray ironing board from here.
Nice and foldable and put away-able. I did a very very bad job of stapling the fabric to the underside! I hate my staple gun or maybe I just need a proper lesson on how to use it:) I have had this project in on my to-do list for ages! A week or so ago I was at Aldi, a German grocery store, and saw some ironing board insulation sold in packages. Just packages of batting made especially for ironing boards. It was a sign! The fabric is a decorator weight fabric from Ikea. The table is the perfect size for small projects.


Our 1st real snow (snow that sticks, can be thrown and piled)! This was yesterday on the way in from the bus stop. If you don't have a snowball maker and you live in a place where it snows, then you have to get one! They are $5.00 on Amazon. They make perfect snowballs and you can make like 20 in 30 seconds (or so). I got the snowman kit  (hat, carrot, nose and eyes) from Target right after Christmas for something like 90% off so it was 10cents or something ridiculous like that.

I think those tables are cool! So do you think you'll use it often? I thought it would be good to have when paper piecing. Great job! I wish I enjoyed being outside in the snow... but I just hate it. Ethan doesn't seem to be too disappointed so hopefully it's not scarring him for life that we don't go outside....

That's such cute fabric! And how convenient too, a mini ironing board. Anything that's mini, I am on board with it!! Oh and I never told you but I genuinely ADORE that quilt from the previous post. It is pure perfection in my eyes and I say if it doesn't match any of her stuff you should give it to someone who would be grateful... :) :) :)

This is a great idea. I could so use one of these and just happen to have a old wood tv tray of my mom's that would be perfect. Those girls of yours just get cuter and cuter. Love seeing their little faces.

Oh I totally want to make one now! I am always lugging out my huge ironing board- never thought about making a smaller one!

So cute! Great idea, I did think you'd done this ages ago....Maybe Jess and I both need one....

Those girls are gorgeous!
