Fleece Throw

I have had a fleece throw kit taking up space in the sewing studio. With Betty Boop still in the hospital awaiting her new parts, now seems like a great time to put this kit together.

Fleece Throw

This was a quick and easy project and I am so happy that it is finished!

I’ll be snuggling up with this comfy throw this winter while reading, stitching, or just being a couch potato!

Ironing Station

An item that has been on my to-list for some time was to create an ironing station in my sewing studio.

I am happy to say that it is finally completed! It didn’t even take that long to do!

Studio Ironing Board

Hubby cut a piece of plywood and glued leftover kitchen flooring to one side (no photo).

The other side of the wood has a layer of foam, followed by a layer of batting, followed by a layer of Insul-Bright and topped with a cotton polka dot print.

The board rests on three Ikea sets of drawers and measures 21″ x 65″.

Ta da! I am happy!
