Very nice. My ironing board could probably use a new cover, but it isn't likely to get one any time soon!

What a good idea. I also have three boards (different sizes). I like the idea of matching.

Much prettier than store bought and I'm sure they are better built. What a perfect addition to a sewing room.

Great job. Love the idea of using bias binding as a casing for the elastic.

Beautiful, Dale! The koi fabric looks so refreshing. I did this too, several years ago and the board still has the same cover. I got fed up with paying $14US for a cover I could make. I zigzagged with a wide stitch, over durable string and pulled the string tight to shape the cover over the board. (I was too lazy to make a casing). I also used Insulbrite to help with the heat protection. I know batting works well as I've recently redone my sewing room and now have a pressing surface (an old table top) with batting.

What a great idea! I too have 3 boards like you all with covers in wildly different patterns and colours. It never occured to me that I could make my own matching covers for them all. So thank you for sharing this one.
