Redo: Ironing Board

Thursday, December 3, 2009

I recovered my ironing board. It was super easy and so much cuter than before!
It actually makes me want to iron, which is a first!! I used the casing from my previous ironing board cover to make it even easier. All I did was trace around my ironing board on my new fabric, cut it a few inches bigger and pin it to my old ironing board cover casing (which I had already cut only about 2-3 inches from the edge). Then sewed around it. Easy peasy!

Huge improvement! I can see why you would want to iron now...let's just say that is something I won't be doing to my iron board! To be honest, my iron board and I are hardly friends...LOL

But it looks GREAT!!! What an awesome idea!

I never would have thought of this! It's a great idea if you are one of those who decorates their laundry room, too, everything would be coordinated.

I am so glad you linked this idea up to my party. I have been inspired and plan on doing my ugly ironing board soon.

How cute!! I was wanting to buy a cute one on Etsy - but I think I can do this! I may give it a try in Jan! - so you just sewed the fabric to your old cover right?

Merry Christmas!
