I got out my nifty bottle of Mod Podge, which has been through some fun times with me and my light switch coverplates.....
Auditioned some fabrics....(meaning pictures sent to my mom via text) ;)
Then I cut fabric pieces a 1/2" larger on each side and marked the place for the handle hole.
Similar to doing lightswitch covers, I cut the hole leaving a 1/4 inch inside the marked lines and clipped the corners so the 1/4" flap would fold to the inside.
Press the fabric to the inside.
Next... I did a little test run using masking tape to hold the fabric in place. I can admit that I cut my first piece weird and the hole was off-center. It's also good to test before gluing things down :) I know that one from experience too. haha!
Time to Mod Podge! I did this on the back on one of my old cutting mats, it has a very slick surface which the mod podge can be cleaned off easily. I wouldn't do this on your nice kitchen table without something underneath to protect it....Just sayin!
Ready? Slap it on!
I folded the corners carefully to be sure they would lay tidy and flat, using more mod podge to really get it saturated and stuck down.
Next~ Another coat of the podge! I made sure to brushstroke in the same direction. (Ignore the eild brushstrokes in the picture below, lol) Mod podge drys clear, but it has a textured finish and if you go all crazy it can sometimes show a little.
Luckily, it has a super fast dry time, so while it finished drying, my hubby Kenny helped me tackle my awful purple iron pads. A piece of wood, some batting, lovely green fabric, and a staple gun!
It's so bright and pretty now!
