have had a very dingy ironing board cover. The thought had occurred to me on more than one occasion that I should purchase a new one but I have a very large ironing board and it's not easy to find covers that fit it. In fact, I've never been able to find a cover for it. I've always made them. Besides... I sew. Sheesh! I should be "making" them. It's just one of those jobs that seems to get put off all the time.
Well, enough is enough. Time to pull finger and get the job done.
I was blog hopping the other day and came across this brilliant tutorial over on lovely Bloom blog. How clever and how simple. So away I went and dug through my stash to find some suitable fabric. I neglected to take a photo of my old dingy cover......... for good reason. It really was a disgrace. Here are the two fabrics I chose.
