My old ironing board cover was dull and uninspiring, so I used it as a pattern and construction guide to create a much more interesting one. I love the bold, vibrant (and inexpensive) prints you can find at Ikea and an ironing board cover is a great way to use one or more of them.
I used a lightweight cotton canvas with a bold print that I picked up at Ikea last year. I don’t believe they carry this particular fabric any longer, but you can usually find something interesting in their fabric department. If the prints don’t grab you, check out the stripes.
