See the yucky stain, ugly denim color and rotary cut right down the middle? (I had a mental brain lapse many months ago and cut something on the ironing board with my rotary cutter... I know, I know!)
The fabric I had that I wanted to use was wider than it was long, so I took the liberty of sewing it together length wise. I figured it was just an ironing board, no one is going to care if there is a seam down the center :)
Then I took the string out from the old cover and saved it to use later :) Next I traced out the old cover onto the new fabric.
I pressed an approximately 1/2" seam all the way around and then I sewed the string casing. (I was lazy since the underside is never seen I didn't finish the fabric edge.)
Then tied the string off onto a safety pin and feed it through.
Then put the finished product onto the board frame. Easy as that!! And I must say it looks a whole lot better too! :)
