{Something for the Rosebud} A Tilda toy ironing board cover

The creation of an item out of scrap fabric is always accompanied by an immense feeling of accomplishment.  Really, it's just making do; but what a great thing to be proud of, right?

Rosie was given this ironing board by her cousins.  One of the best kinds of hand-me-downs.  It came with a cover her Gran made many years ago, but it was pretty tired looking, and its elastic had given up the ghost a while ago.

So after rummaging around in my overflowing scrap bin (which made me realise I really need to do this kind of thing a bit more often, as well as have a ruthless clean out!) I decided on the Tilda.  This collection is a couple of years old, I think, but it's still pretty.  

Randomly placed squares of 2.5" x 2.5" size.  Just big enough to show off the Tilda patterns, but small enough to fit a few across the top of this teeny tiny ironing board.

And a faux bow at the end.
