Ironing board

For a year I have been eagerly reading Sherri and Sinta's "A Year of Shnibbles" posts, but never got around to join in. This year they are doing "Le Petite...A Year of Small Projects" - me gonna join this year?



They are starting off the year with a new cover for your ironing board. Hmmm... Let's have a look at mine:



There are actually two store bought covers on there, and you can see the metal straight through both of them...



over the last couple of months I have used a bath towel on top ...starting to get a bit brownish...



I stripped it down, and see how those covers look on the inside - no wonder it has been a burnt smell in the room whenever I have been pressing!



I definitely need a new one!!! Ok, I have gone through 1-2 covers pr year on an average the last six years, so I don't want to put too much work into it - and I don't want any embelishments getting in the way when pressing or ironing - so a simple one piece cover it is! I dug up a fabric that look a bit patched from my stash, attached four layers of batting and a cord, and this is how it looks now



It even matches my steam iron! *lol* Me a happy girl!!!
Have a fab Sunday!

Congratulation on a new cover! It seems to fit well. I have also thought of a new cover for some time now; may be this is the push I need to get it done.

This is going to be fun! Very inspriational as well since I too have the burnt covering. Sounds like a bad movie title "Burnt Coverings." hee.

You will smile every time you use it.

I'm sure mine is in need of a change too. I like your new cover!

So very pretty!!! I have done the same a few years back with a 100% cotton floral bed sheet. It might be time to do it again!

that's a pretty awesome ironing board cover. Your metal is imprinted on your cover, mine has the metal showing through.

I think I'm over due. I certainly have the scrap batting around to cover.

I've enjoyned it, too! But I'm not making the cover, I've changed mine just a few weeks ago so that is not necessary now. Yours looks good, ready to have your beautiful pieces on it!
