Ironing Board Cover {tutorial}

I love my new ironing board cover.


2 yards of fabric is enough to make two [count that - TWO] ironing board covers!  And at [approximately] $11.00 a yard I figure that is just about the same amount of money I would spend on a cover I would buy from Walmart[except I was able to make mine using this really cute fabric called Secret Garden by Sandi Henderson for Michael Miller.  And it totally goes with my sewing room.  Cute right?] 

It took about 10, maybe 15 minutes to make.  And it was super easy.

You can find the link to the tutorial HERE.

Oh my, that is cute! I desperately need a new sewing cover. Mine is all stained and worn out. Thanks for the link :-)
I hope your week is going better. If that marker is washable you don't need to worry about a thing! It will come right out without doing anything special at all. I draw on my quilts all of the time with washable crayola's :-)

Goodness! I don't know how you made that in 10-15 minutes! I made one this morning and it turned out great! But, with cutting and sewing the piece of fabric and the bias tape it took me about 1.5 hour.

Thanks for posting the tutorial. My cover was looking pretty sad. :)

Love the Michael Miller fabric! I made dd a skirt with the same fabric in blue...super cute!
