I’m embarrassed to show you but if I don’t you won’t believe me… my ironing board cover had gotten so bad I think it was a fire hazard!
The spot shown above is obviously my ‘go-to’ area for pressing everything.
Whenever I had to use my ironing board for taking tutorial pictures, I needed to be super sly, showing a closeup of one of the few spots left that didn’t look awful, lol!
Luckily all that is over because I finished sewing myself a new ironing board cover yesterday!
I think I waited so long to make myself a new cover because I really wanted to use the adorable fabrics in the Sweet Caroline collection that I curated with CT Fabrics, but I wasn’t allowed to show them to you until now! (shipping to quilt shops in January 2019)
On this fabulous new ironing board cover, I included all of the features that I have loved from covers in my past…
Like pockets for pressing tools that I need to keep handy,
A fitted nose that won’t come off,
An elastic buckle to keep it tight…
If you’re getting jealous of my new cover, don’t worry! I’m working on the tutorial and will try to post it on Monday - since we have an extra week until we start our new U-Pick Sewing Challenge on the first Monday of November.❤️
Did you notice that ironing boards were on my list of 5 Hidden Sewing Supplies to find at the Thrift Store (besides fabric)? So go grab yourself a big old sturdy one to put a new cover on!
