Ironing board cover and padding.

Sometime last year I was talking about making an ironing board cover…well, it’s finally here. It was fun to make and I am very happy with the outcome.

You need clear elastic, I think I have some but want to double check. Anyway check out my cover…let me know what you think!!!

Bias tape was sewn all around and I inserted the elastic to the piece.
Here it is on the board.
I also had a helper, who just got in the
