a convergence of tea time thoughts for ladies

New Ironing Board Cover

May20309 May20310 May20312

Here it is all finished in the first photo. In the 2nd photo you can see some of my shoddy work. I left the old (blue) cover on and you see a little old foam sticking out, the drawstrings too. On top of that old blue cover is a year old one from Walmart and the reason why it doesn’t show is this: I cut out this pale aqua material and fitted it under the elastic edging of the old Walmart cover.

What lazy ole me has is a nice cotton iron board top that is tucked under the Wall-mart elastic trim iron board cover and that whole shebang is fitted around the old old blue iron board cover with drawstrings. I made more shortcuts than the lady I got the idea from who made her own tutorial on her blog tutorial for an iron cover. Lisa Lam is her name and U-handbag is the name of her blog. There are others out there too. I’ll need another tutorial when this new one wears out and I finally uncover the other 2 Iron board covers underneath .

And by the way, see the spray starch on the ironing table? If you iron your cotton slips with it, you’ll feel all the prettier.
