One day, a couple of months ago, Pete made the girls a toy ironing board. The girls loved it. I promised the girls I would make a cover for it. I finally did it over the weekend.
I simply traced around the ironing board to get the correct shape. To give the cover a bit of cushioning, I also cut up an old scrap of a woollen blanket and an old flat terry nappy. I stitched these together around the edges to hold them together. Then I attached a 2 inch rectangular band around the edge - this was finished off with bias binding. A thin piece of elastic was threaded through the binding and viola! It was finished, one hour later.
Do you recognise the fabric? Yep, still a favourite of mine. :)
The girls love it and the ironing board is getting carried all over the house - bedrooms, rumpus room, lounge room and bathroom (don't ask about that one!). Big success, and so simple to make.
