More sewing on things that aren't in my 'WIP' line up -- but, in all fairness I really needed to make a 'pro-type' of something I couldn't find a pattern for on the Internet (I know it's crazy -- but, you try typing in 'cord cover' into Google and see what you get -- let me tell you -- it's not pretty !)
Now back to the 'cord covers' : Personally, I've always thought they were a neat and sensible way to disguise those dangling lamp cords; and, when my daughter, Jessika, mentioned that she wouldn't mind having a few for Mother's Day -- the creative wheels began turning -- besides it was a good excuse not to finish one of the existing projects that are beginning to pile up.
I think because of the fabric choice -- this particular 'pro-type' cord cover looks a little like a section of small intestine -- but, maybe that's just me and my weird sense of humor !!
Whatever (Hubby truly hates that term -- but, I love it !) -- the cord cover made the trip north to my daughter's home -- we tried it out with one of her lamp cords and it looks very stylish and decorator-ish. The only modification to the 'pro-type', will be to use three 4" strips of fabric for the cord cover -- which should make it even more gathered/ruffle-y.
Jessika and I can see all sorts of possibilities for these cord covers and of course, we now have to make many -- in various colors/prints for our homes -- and beyond !!
