Barbara's Fresh Ironing Board Covers

My ironing board cover was looking pretty terrible, so I recovered it.

I used this funny vintage fabric, a package of double fold bias tape,  and this YouTube tutorial.   It makes ironing much more pleasant. 

While I was at it, I also recovered the ironing pad I keep next to my sewing machine.

I covered it with another piece of vintage fabric by just folding it over to the back side and taping it down with blue painter's tape.

It's amazing the things that will give you a fresh lease on life.

Very nice! Anything that makes ironing more pleasant gets a gold star in my book.

Hmmm, I don't like to iron at the best of times, but your new cover looks fresh and pretty. Still wouldn't tempt me though.....lol!
