I have quite a few ironing pads, in different sizes - 2' x 4' is the biggest, and then there's 2' x 2', 1' x 1', 12" x 18", 13" x 13", and 18" x 18". I just like having a lot of different size ironing pads for whatever I'm working on. When I originally made them, I used a bland, solid beige duckcloth on them. That was before I realized that duckcloth comes in a LOT of great looking patterns. So I decided to recover them and jazz them up some. Melissa picked out the green and I picked out the blue. I really like how they turned out. No more boring ironing pads!
