My old ironing board cover was getting cruddy to say the least. Yuck. I don't even like looking at the pictures- but I'll share them with you anyways. So I thought it was time to update it but I didn't want to spend any money or be limited by the selection at the store. So my solution was to create one for myself instead! I took some pictures to show you what I did and I hope I can explain it well enough that you can create one for yourself too. Maybe use that cute fabric you have or match your room décor?
My ironing board cover also has a nose tip, which I cut out with roughly a 1-inch seam allowance all the way around.
Fold over the edge about an inch- this is for the casing. Stitch near the edge, leaving an opening. Insert your elastic cord and sew the opening closed.
Viola! Enjoy your brand new one-of-a-kind ironing board cover!
