A New Look for an Iron Board

 This is what the finished product looks like. I'm pleased with the outcome.
 I found this old stained iron board in a thrift store for 1 dollar. A small iron board comes in very handy for small sewing projects. And I was exited when I found one for a price I could not say no to.

It was pretty much in need of a new look.

 It is really very easy to make a new iron board cover. Just lay your iron board up side down on your desired fabric and batting, cut around, adding  4 inches all around.

 Machine stitch all around leaving a opening of about 4 inches at the straight end. Turn the cover right side out and press. Machine stitch 2 inches in from the edge all the way around .
Attach a safety pin to the end of a ribbon, and thread it through the opening on the straight end, all the way around. .

 Lay the cover over the iron board and pull the ribbon to gather. Secure with a bow.
 It looks like a brand new iron board, at leased new to me :)  And if it gets soiled, I will just untie it and toss into the laundry and re-use it again.

 I also gave my older larger Iron board a new cover.


  1. I was using mine this week and wanting a new cover myself. Yours look great!

  2. Would you like me to make one for you ,Tonya? I would be happy to :)
