|For a long time i wanted a good cover for my ironing board, and was not happy with the commercial ones. Main thing was to be able to take it off easily and wash.
Then saw a board cover on a web site from Australia, I think that gave the idea. I used some wool fabric and a cotton to cover, both cut to size leaving several inches for the side and to go under the board. Serged the edge of the cotton and added buttons at about 5 inches apart to the edge all around. I used buttonhole elastic to tighten the cover on my board buttoning the elastic in a zig-zag from one side to the other. It is easy to put on and take off and is rock solid on my board.
