My take on a card I saw for sale on pinterest. Next time I would attach the vellum differently, but it's still cute!

A proper start of this post would have been to include the "before" pic of my ironing board cover. Both the cover and foam below were so worn that you could actually see the metal grid. But I just kept ironing, despite the lovely grid impression that was transferred to the fabric. Yet when I found this tutorial on how to redo the cover using the old one, I knew the time had come......the time to make a new cover. I got a bit lazy when it came to pinning, so the new cover doesn't lay quite as smooth as it should.....but I"m sure it'll be a definite improvement over the old!

Not much to say about this guy. I essentially followed this tutorial, but turned him into a rice bag instead of a bean bag. The rice is contained inside another bag inside the owl, and is removable so that the outer owl can be washed. This is important to me, as everything seems to get dirty in our house-- not to mentioned covered with dog hair. I'd really like to make some small hand warmers, but the smaller size wouldn't be machine washable.....I mean, can you throw rice in the wash?
