I had an old clipboard that my son had doodled all over years ago. Rather than buy a new one, I thought it would be fun to cover it with fabric for my daughter to use.
I started with two coordinating fabrics I had in my fabric stash. One of the fabrics was left over from when I recovered a chair I found in the attic for my daughter's room.
I traced around the clipboard leaving about a 1/2 inch all the way around.
Then using Mod Podge I glued the fabric onto the clipboard.
I then glued the excess fabric onto the back of the clipboard.
I then glued the coordinating fabric onto the back of the clipboard to give it a finished look.
It was at this point I wanted to cut away the fabric using my utility knife to expose the metal mechanism. However, I couldn't for the life of me find my utility knife. So for now, I am leaving it covered. It looks fine and still functions as it is supposed to.
Here is the finished product. Super cute...and my daughter loved it!
Tomorrow the entire family is invited to a Bar Mitzvah for a close friend of the family. I found this awesome dress and jewelry at White House Black Market.
I had a tough time getting a decent photo, but hopefully you get the idea.
Have a great weekend.
