I use a flat iron on my hair every day. After I am done using it, it sits on the bathroom sink to cool off, usually for several hours, sometimes all day. And that is because if I can't put it away right away, it may not get put away at all. I have been looking for a flat iron cover for it for a long time but I haven't found one that I like and that is a reasonable price.
This idea has been floating around Pinterest lately. It was one of those things I pinned with the idea that I would do it one day, but wasn't sure if I ever would. I have been keeping an eye out for cool potholders but until today haven't find one I liked. I went on a shopping spree at Hobby Lobby today and found this cool animal print potholder (For some reason I have a thing for animal print accessories right now). I snatched it up and brought it home. I folded it in half, took a needle and thread and sewed it up. In less than 10 minutes I had a new flat iron cover.
It was super easy to make. No fancy sewing skills required. And now I can put my flat iron away so it won't sit on the bathroom sink all day. Problem solved!
