Remember the Laundry Room Chalkboard?
And the Laundry Room Rag Tie Wreath?
So I had some of the gray and white strip material left and decided I needed a new ironing board cover.
I took the material (was around 2 yards) and placed it in my kitchen floor and placed the ironing board on top of the material. As you can see I have material left for something else.
I cut it out the shape of the ironing board (as best as I could) leaving enough material all the way around so that I could form a hem.
Then I pressed the hem in place with my iron. I did not measure the hem. I just allowed enough hem so my elastic would go through easy.
I pressed hem in place all the way around lapping over the corners. On the side that is rounded I just pressed the hem down as best as I could.
Then I hemmed it in place with my sewing machine and left just enough opening to get my elastic through.
I used a safety pin to thread my elastic through but I know people that use a bobby pin and it works just as well.
I threaded my elastic through my hem all the way around pulling as I went to make it as even as possible. When I got to end I simply used the safety pin to pin the elastic in place and then I pinned the other side of elastic as well.
Placed the cover on the ironing board and pulled it as I saw needed so it would fit nicely. Then I tied the elastic as tight as I could with a double tie and snipped the remainder of the elastic. Finished Project!
And...this is what it would look like If I decided to iron!!!! (which don't happen often)
My ironing board will now be perfect in the new laundry room! (and just so you will know...I almost made some yo-yos to attached SOMEWHERE! LOL!
