I’ve been eying my heating pad cover for sometime with disgust. Those felty things aren’t the prettiest in the world. I wanted to make my own cover, so it could be cute and useful. This is what I came up with. I spent a lot of time on the details–French seams and hemming tape at the top to reinforce it. I’ve never made an appliquÃƒÂ© flower before, but it was simple enough to do. I used some of the gorgeous blue cloud and bat fabric I got just a smidge of, because it was ridiculously expensive.
I made this last weekend, when I had President’s Day off. Little did I know that I’d have to use it all week long! I spent a long day helping paint a friend’s house and apparently twisted something in my back, making it difficult to move and so that I had to cart my heating pad into work each day. I’m a little, old lady in disguise, apparently.
We’ve had glorious weather here. It’s been downright balmy and sunny and just spectacular. Work was another long week, but one without travel. This winter seems to be passing quickly, thankfully. I am already aching for warm weather and beach time. I heard the groundhog didn’t see his shadow, but that means nothing, right? Because the crocuses are popping up here and I’m ready to put the sweaters away.
