DIY Ironing Board Cover




Hi,
This is my first DIY.  I have seen many tutorials of the same .This is my way of doing it. Hope it is easy to understand.


Things needed :
  • 3/4 Yard of 60 inch wide cotton material
  • marker
  • matching thread
  • scissor
  • elastic about 75inch long
  • sewing machine

Instructions :

First lay the material on the ironing board, wrong side up. Mark around it with a chalk or marker.


Measure the height. Mine is 3/4inch.


Lay the material on a table. Add 3 1/4+3/4=4 inch to the marked measurement.


Cut around.


First stitch 1/4 inch around or serge.


Now fold 1 inch and iron for casing. Little folds here and there is ok. 


Stitch around leaving 2 inch for threading elastic.


After threading  tie or stitch elastic and stitch the opening .




Enjoy your new ironing board !!!
