I recently threw out an old sleeve board and I wish I had seen your beautiful cover first! I especially like the thickness of the quilting fabric - the cotton covers are always so thin! You've inspired me to dig out my home dec ironing board stash patterns! So pretty!

That's SO pretty! Lovely fabric. I'm going to make ironing boards soon, so your review helps.

AZ Cat..I added an explanation in the review. The bias tape forms a casing and you add elastic through it and pull it tight. You could use string also..that's traditional. This is certainly easier than the good old days when I helped my mother sew the new covers to the ironing board!

Sounds like a project I need to do, too. How do you pull the cover tight over the board? Do you pull a string through a casing? If its possible to get a photo of the underside, I'd like to see it.
