I have been telling you about that ironing board cover for two weeks now…so here it is!
Easy Slip Cover for an Ironing board
This was so easy. All I did was take of the original cover and attach inexpensive muslin to the top, cheap and easy! And yes I added the token owl. He did not quite turn out as planned. I meant for him to look like he saw the iron coming….hmmmm….what do you think? Anyhoo…
This is an idea of what it looked like after I had sewn it on. First I pinned the muslin to the cover while it was on the board. I just pleated it around the corners
This is what the corners looked like after I had sewn them. Cut around the perimeter leaving about an inch from the seam, use pinking shears if you have them. Then I just popped it back on! Now you will never have to see that ugly cover again. You’re welcome.
Oh I almost forgot! My big idea! I added a measure guide to the top using a fine tip Sharpie.
I hate it when I am ironing pieces for a pattern and I have to guess on the folds. And trust me I cut hair long enough to know that what you think is a half inch and what really is a half inch are two different things. All I did is place my big clear cutting ruler on top, make a long mark for the inch mark, a shorter one for the half, and a dot for the quarter. You can measure your folds your supposed to iron right on your board!
Next week I have a fun skirt and some Valentine gifts you can sew up in a jiffy so be sure to pop in!
