No More Tangles Jewellery Board
I've been using a rather nasty pinboard that was orignally bought for about £3 from Trago Mills. It stopped my jewellery getting knotted up in a box and with everything on display it somehow makes it easier to pick what to wear. But I thought I'd start the day by quickly giving it a makeover into something a little more aesthetically pleasing.
So I got out the ironing board, my copydex and a piece of leftover fabric (see More Mama's Makes to see how the bulk of this was used to make a tunic). I cut the fabric so that it was about an inch larger than the baize part of the board and then ironed the cloth to size using a board as a template. I then simply glued the bits together and ended up with a pinboard to be proud of. With all the jewellery displayed it looks like a work of art in its own right.
At some stage in the future I might need another board or two and its occured to me, that as I'm a bit of a nightmare whenever I use glue (somehow there's a smear of copydex on the back of my pyjama trousers!) I could use double sided interfacing instead next time.
