 Randi at I have to say, is hosting monthly sew-along projects throughout 2012.  In February, she shared an easy tutorial for making an ironing board cover.  I haven't had a new one for years and years - mine was a sad, threadbare, stained mess - so I decided to use some of my favourite fabric and sew a new one.

It was really easy to make and I love how it turned out.

This should make ironing a happy chore, right?!  Actually I don't mind it at all and having a new cover makes me very happy.  I can see myself making a few more of these for family and friends.


  1. I remember ironing when I was at home and you paying me a dollar for every thing I ironed. I don't think I made more than ten dollars at a time, if that. ;) The colours are gorgeous and love that print.

  2. A few years ago, I made a new one in a hurry and, so help me, used polyester. What an unmitigated disaster. I do believe I tossed the iron out too because the congealed mess was too dreadful to clean. The moral of the story is to check that the fabric is not polyester!!!

  3. it's so cute! love how it turned out. and i'm cracking up at linds' story. oh dear...
