Design Wall Monday–December 7, 2015

Last Friday I met with a group of friends for lunch and a Christmas gift exchange.  This was my second year participating and it once again a delightful day.  Although there are 12 women that participate, you only make 5 gifts and in exchange you receive 5 gifts.  They are all hand made but may or may not be Christmas related.   

Here’s what I made for my 5 gifts.





TV tray ironing boards.  I have one and I love it so I’m hoping the 5 friends that got these will love theirs too.  It’s perfect for sitting next to your sewing machine or taking along with you to a retreat, plus did I mention, they are really cute. 

First I painted them bright candy apple red.  Next I added 3 layers or cotton batting, 1 layer of Insulbrite, followed by this really cute cotton sewing fabric. 

On a later post I’ll share what I received as my 5 gifts.  They’re wonderful.

To see what others are working on, check out Judy’s blog.




  1. I am sure they LOVED them ... I know that I would ;-)

  2. Those are fabulous!!! I certainly would love one... I've seen these at retreats but none as pretty as yours.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
