- 2 yards of fabric
- velcro fabric fusion, 2 boxes
- iron- on fusible hemming tape
One of the things I can’t stand most about my laundry room is the ugly utility sink first thing when you walk in. So I was determined to make it pretty!! I’m going to share with you how I made this the center of my laundry room, in a good way 🙂
Here’s what you’re going to need:
I’ve been tending to use a little more black in my decor, so when I found this fabric I knew it was perfect! It has a hint of dark grays, black, mustards and brown. I bought close to 4 yards but only ended up using about 2 yards for this project. Start by ironing out your fabric, or throwing it in the dryer with a damp towel to remove the wrinkles. Measure the length and height the fabric needs to be, by making a small mark with pen on the back of the fabric. Cut your fabric leaving each side an additional inch for your hemming tape. With your heated iron, begin ironing one the hemming tape according to the directions. Once cool, peel off the paper, fold fabric down and iron on for your perfect hem! Continue to do this for any sides that need hemmed. At this point, I went ahead and added my velcro to my utility sink by gluing it on and let dry. I attached the velcro to my fabric according to the instructions, using my iron. I was excited about this, because the velcro is washable, and goodness knows it’s bound to get dirty so it’s perfect for me to remove when it needs washing! For us, we keep our dog, Lola’s, food and water bowl under the sink, so I measured and mark where I would cut a slit to open that space up. Once I cut it, I secured the sides with hemming tape. I tied each side back using a small amount of jute I had on hand.
I’m really happy with how it turned out and I feel like it really makes a world of difference for my compact laundry room 🙂
