I remember reading a blog linked to a pattern review which talked about making an ironing board cover using the current cover's tightening cord and casing. It was an ingenious method to cut away the casing and attach to new cotton which will cover the ironing board. The blog post had instructions to attach the existing section which cinches the cover to the board. I'd like to find that post if anyone remembers.

Thanks

Well I can use that info for a start, but its not the tutorial I was remembering. In this one, she's using elastic to pull the cover tight around the ironing board. The one I remember was ingenious to utilize the factory made casing and string from the original worn out cover. I'm sure we can figure it out but I remember her informative tutorial as doing all the brain work. Maybe someone else will remember.

Thanks for this link - it'll be a great start.

Ironing Board cover tutorial

I think this is the one I saved on my computer so I would have it later. It does utilize the old casing. Of course I no longer have that computer and the saved files that were not critical are on a USB stick 'somewhere'.

Hope this helps! I was glad to find it again myself!

Yes Janyce - that's it! I think her tutorial is really smart and I'm going to give that technique a try. Thank you Joan and Janyce for the links! I hope some other members benefit with the info too.


Thanks again.
