ironing board cover tutorial

 I made this tutorial FOREVER ago…and am just now getting around to posting it. eh.


I needed a new ironing board cover-my old one was getting grungy! These are so easy-but I thought I’d make a tutorial of how I did it anyways. here goes…

Click below for more!

You’ll need:
fabric (depends on the size of your ironing board of course. I used about 1/2 yard for my mini one)
1/8th inch elastic
regular sewing stuff (ie, machine, scissors, thread, etc)

First, lay out your board on top of your fabric to make sure you have enough.
 Cut around the board about 2.5 inches, following the curves.
 Serge or zig zag stitch the edges…

 then fold over 1/2 inch and pin. On the curved parts it may be a tad tricky-but it doesn’t have to be pretty-you’re not going to see it! (unless you regularly turn your ironing board upside down)
 sew around fabric as shown, leaving a small space for inserting your elastic.
 attach a safety pin to your elastic (I’m not sure how much I used, but start with a long piece just to be safe)

 Pull it through all the way, then put it on your ironing board.

pull both ends of elastic tight, and adjust as needed. Ties your two ends securely together- pull it off the ironing board, and sew the opening closed. Tada!

Now you have a brand new (and cute) ironing board cover!
see? so easy. :)

here’s a little Charlotte eye candy for ya. Thanks for all the nice comments on my semi-whiny post last Friday! I appreciated them. I’m done being whiny now. (but still tired…D’oh! that’s whining. erm. Never mind)

  1. Super cute ironing board. And super cute baby. :) I’m tempted to recover my ironing board, but the cover that it came with has these awesome stripes that make it super easy and fast to fold hems over and stuff. I think if I recovered it I’d have to do stripes again. Haha.

  2. Thank you for the tutorial, and Charlotte is soooo cute!!!

  3. I think I can handle that! I have my grandma’s mini board that desperately needs a recover, and this looks simple enough :)

  4. Thanks! I need to do this for my ironing board. I have an over-the-door version and the cover choices at Walmart/Target are hideous! My poor board is sporting a really ugly plaid at the moment :(

  5. Your ironing board is so cheery. Love that picture of Charlotte! She’s getting so big so fast.

  6. I’m filing this one away. My cover is in OK shape, but I can see needing to recover in the not too distant future. And I’m with Katie, I use the stripes on my cover to help with my pressing, too! Thanks for the tutorial!

  7. she just gets cuter everyday. sadies getting some competition!!!

  8. You make it look soooo easy! Mine is super dingy too, and in total need of a makeover. And in case you didn’t know – your baby is adorable :)

  9. This is great! I featured you today on Today’s Top 20!! I’d love if you stopped by!

  10. Hey! I just used your ironing board tutorial to update my large ironing board. Worked like a charm! Pics on my blog. Thanks!

  11. I’m glad I found this tutorial. I was thinking about making a new ironing board cover since mine is covered in cat fur. I have the same iron though :)
