I traced my ironing board on the fabric and drew a 3.5" border around that. I cut out the fabric along the outer border. After hemming, I folded the fabric over 1" running the twine down the fold. I did a zig-zag stitch to close it. At the flat end of the board, I reinforced the fabric with fusible interfacing and made two buttonholes for the twine to come through to create a drawstring.
Super awesome cats gone wild cotton fabric, twine
