There’s no reason to settle for the bland fabric that comes on most ironing boards – making a new cover is super easy!
I loved my old ironing board cover, but it had gotten badly waterstained and really faded in the sun. Plus – I made all kinds of new sewing room accessories using the Ed Emberley Happy Drawing fabric collection and I wanted my ironing board to match. So time for a new cover!
This time I needed to replace the pad too, so it was a great time to shoot a video showing you how to do the whole thing from start to finish.
If you want even more padding, I recommend a couple of layers of 100% cotton terry cloth. A towel won’t fit the length of most ironing boards, but you can buy it by the yard at the big box fabric stores.
