I have my grandmother's old ironing board at the farm, and it was desperately in need of a new cover. In a nod to my fabric-hoarding predecessor, my Mum and I dug out an old piece of fabric from Grandma's stash.
In a combined effort, Mum sewed while I wrote the tutorial :)
- Two pieces of fabric the length x width of your ironing board plus approximately 8 inches. We used the old floral fabric for one side, and a blue and white micro-check for the other. Our ironing board is 54" long and 15" wide at the heel end.
- 1.5 yards 1/4" elastic
Lay the two fabric pieces on a flat surface, right sides together. Lay the ironing board on top of the fabric, table side down.
