The table top was not the right width for my mat so we went to Home Depot and found a nice piece of wood in a pile that was miss-cut and they were going to throw out!!! It was the perfect size and we got it for FREE!! Got it home and attached it to the plastic table top with just Velcro command strips!
But it wasn't very pretty.....handy, the correct size but a person didn't have to know we rigged up a plastic folding table so I got out my bolt of burlap and got to work, measuring, hemming then stapling and here she is:
I would like to find some ribbon or something to put around the top...I had nothing that I thought looked right so I will be on the lookout in the future.
So now the ironing mat. I was using my old sewing cabinet for my pressing mat...it was way too low and not near big enough. I had bought a pattern for an ironing board cover...so the top is a nice big rectangle but you can use the ironing board which is the perfect height and adjustable. So my handy Dad made one and brought it down when he came for Amy's grad.
And now all covered up and ready to go:
Now I have no excuse why I can't sew, press, and cut all day long!!
