It was just time for a new iron board cover. The old one was torn, stained, and scorched. Then I had to coffee stain some fabric for a doll I was making and when I ironed the fabric, the coffee went right into that ratty cover. Time for a new cover whether or not I had the time to make it or not. I have a hard time buying one because I have one of those ironing boards that are extra wide. It came in handy when I was making Civil War gowns. The new cover is made using Connecting Threads Quilting Bee and Gridlines fabrics which are 100% cotton. It is my own design...I put the Gridline fabric over the top of the Quilting Bee fabric in places where it gets the most wear/tear. I bought extra fabric so when it starts to wear, I can replace those areas.

Pretty and practical!  Good idea to keep extra fabric on hand for repairs!

Never thought about making my own ironing board cover.  Nice work.
