Success! A New Ironing Board Cover

It’s not perfect, but it’s good enough. I used 2 layers of Warm and Natural batting underneath the muslin and now it feels and looks so much better! When I started thinking about doing this, I found a few tutorials and ended up following this one as it seemed by far the easiest.

It is so nice to have a clean new ironing board cover. I know the muslin will show discolouration faster than a print but now that I’ve done this once, I can do it again easily. It sounds more complicated than it is. I think it took me longer to read through the tutorial than it did to actually make the new cover.

The new quilt wasn’t started yesterday as I ended up doing a lot of computer clean-up stuff as well as making the ironing board cover. There were tons and tons of photos that didn’t need to be on my hard drive but could be burned on to DVDs. Today I will get a start on the quilt. To start, I’ll be printing 3″ HSTs using Inklingo. I’m using muslin with a variety of fabrics so will only need to print on the muslin and then stitch on the sewing lines.

Baxter has many favourite spots but lately he seems to really like reclining by the quilt hoop. Wonder if he’s trying to tell me to get some hand quilting done.

  1. Looks very simple! I think I will use some pretty striped pillow ticking . . . it seems very tightly woven, which I’m sure wouldn’t hurt! Thanks for showing that it can be done easily! Baxter is quite the ham these days! xxoo


  2. Love it~great job. I need to buy an entirely new ironing board. A big one. I’ve recovered them in the past, but they didn’t turn out as well as yours. Such a small thing can make such a difference, can’t it?~?~?
