I’m in love with anything that is vintage inspired.
I came upon this lovely domestic diva fabric awhile ago and I had planed on using it to decorate my laundry room. Well that never happened. And so the fabric has been sitting in my stash for a few years now.
What better way to use it than to make an ironing board cover. I usually use this small ironing board for all my sewing projects.
It’s quite handy.
This fabric will make an adorable apron too.
I’m so adding that to my to do list…
I took off the old cover.
Laid out my fabric and the pattern. I just used the ironing board padding as my pattern template.
The old cover had a string that was used to gather the cover around the board. I took it off the old one and re~used it on the new one…
- Overlock the edges of my fabric
- Placed the string over the overlocked edge and used a large zigzag stitch to encase the string. Making sure not to catch the string in your stitching.
- Pulling up the strings just a little
- Placed the cover over the ironing board and pulled the strings up tightly.
Not bad for a quick change-up and clean up for my ironing board.
It’s so pretty to look at now…
