They want you to show your ironing board as is and then make a new cover for it.
So here it is... this is the before
Not too bad I just made this cover a few months ago.. My ironing board is not the standard size so I have to make new covers on a regular basis. I wear them out.. (Maybe I need to get a life) :o}
And here is the new......
I had to make a few adjustments on the pattern to fit a wider -- short board -- but it worked just fine. I used the pattern "Patch work Ironing board covers" from Cotton Way.
Hope you have a great day
