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.

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!

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

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!
