make your own ironing board cover!
Recently, i had noticed how hard i was working our ironing board..
it looked sad, run down, and burnt out!
So i thought to myself " how hard can it be to make an ironing board cover???
It was sooooo simple!
All you need is:
a piece of 100% COTTON fabric, the size of your board and a bit more. Make sure it is something you can live with, cause you will be seeing it a lot...
some store bought bias binding, any colour will do.
and a sewing machine.
And all you do is:
Take off the existing cover, and lay it flat on the new fabric you are using, having pulled out the string. Save the string!
cut out the shape, and the sew the bias binding around the edge, folded over. Don't forget to leave a gap for the string!
Thread the string through the bias binding, and put this over the old batting, over your board. Pull the string as tight as you can and tie.
Done!!! wow, it feels like a new board!!!!!!
