Ugly duckling

Saw this on Pinterest the other day and went right out and got some cute vinyl to cover my UGLY cookie sheet.
Of course, I didn't read the directions...ha.  That would have made it TOO easy.  But stay with me here.
If I WOULD have done that I would have bought the strong (heavy duty adhesive spray listed) instead of struggling with my glue gun.  But then she and her friend used just regular fabric and I used something that could be wiped off.  And I added handles.  I am thinking more of bbq stuff and Koolaid pitchers and cookies.
Anyway, I love it so much, I will make another one and then go and buy myself some new cookie SHEETS!!

Here is how she goes...
Get 1/2 yd of fabric...
Buy some handles of choice and measure the width and drill two holes on the top of the rim.  (I didn't use this hand drill and in fact went and bought a new metal drill bit. Worked great.

I then just wrapped the covering around from front to back and began glueing with the glue gun.  Corners were a bit tricky but I just slit them into the corner and forged ahead.

  (I noticed on the video--that with the fabric they just stretched it as they went.  Vinyl doesn't stretch...)  I then cut a piece for the back that hid most of the little pleats around the corners.  I inserted the handles and done!  Fun stuff.
