Ironing Board Pictures

LIBBY at Simply Libby Blog is having a give away in honor of Leap Day. She asks everyone to post a picture of their ironing board and leave her a comment.

My ironing board cover had gotten to looking VERY bad and had holes in it where I had inadvertently cut it in the past. The cut places were right in the center of the board which is where I iron the most. As you can see from this picture I tried to make do by putting fabric scraps under the hole. Doesn't the John Deere green plaid look smashing with the burnt red cover? LOL

I plan to make my own new ironing board cover and found a great tutorial on doing this at the Lines From The Vine Blog, but just haven't been able to get around to it. So I went to Walmart and bought one that will last me until I can make my own. The new one is plain old sage green. I would like to make one with bright colors. I have some barn red plaid fabric that I think would make a pretty ironing board cover.

BEFORE (yuck)







AFTER

Look at you! So creative! I just bought myself a new ironing board cover a few weeks ago... my old one had cats all over it and I loved it... but it had seen its better days. Now I have pretty flowers all over it. I meant to tell you yesterday that I have been wanting to read the book you mentioned below. I hope to find it in our library!

I use my ironing board as my cutting surface, too. It is the perfect height for me *S* Thanks for playing.

Hi Debbie,
My cover is plain blue. Nothing exciting. LOL
I use it mostly when I craft.
Hugs,
