I have projects that I was wanting to do but my ripped up ironing board was not making me motivated to do anything so I pulled out fabrics from my stash and made a new cover. I used my ironing board as a template and added 3 1/2" to the actual size.
I then cut 2 1/2" strips, sew them together to create a casing for the ribbon that I used to thread it through the casing. I used the ribbon to be able to pull it to fit the way I needed it to. I did finish the raw edges so everything looks nice and pretty.
Hubby came home and thought I bought a new cover. Silly guy ;-)
