Ironing Board Cover

I've been trying to stay sane while Matt works like crazy this week, and sometimes staying sane means ignoring your kids so you can make something!  So I did.  I bought this mini ironing board at the D.I. for 3 dollars, and then used fabric I already had to make it pretty again.  I just winged it, but I think it turned out pretty good.  Just don't look at my top stitching, my machine was being kinda weird!
Just so you all know I didn't ignore them all day, just part of it!
Eww gross, right?

Oh and just a note about the previous post, I've been getting a lot of questions about whether that photo was staged or not, and let me just say, yes, it was. (Obviously) But it was staged by me because of this photo. 

Jonas told me he was ready for church, he did it all by himself, and I thought it would make a funny picture if Gibson was in it too. So it wasn't all me.  We have a smart alec 3 year old to blame!

That's really cute! My ironing board cover is terrible, as in it was Joel's when he was still single!

Bahaaa! Your boys are just too funny! PS Let's plan to live close together at one point so you can teach me how to really sew!
