I have a little tabletop ironing board (although I use it on the floor!) which has
taken some battering!
It definitely deserved a makeover....
And my safety pin tin was rather sad too!
I found an old biscuit tin stored away in a cupboard and even though it is a little
large I thought it was too pretty to be hidden away!
With that achieved I turned my attentions to the ironing board...
|Some pretty fabric from my large stash...|
I took the old cover off, unthreaded the cord and used the top as a pattern.
|That old top was nasty, wasn't it?|
I cut the new fabric a fair bit larger than the previous cover to allow for the
extra padding I added from my basting scraps...
Cut, hem with a narrow casing for the cord, thread the cord and pull it up tight!
Got to be happy with that.

I love your tin! You will have a fun time filling that up with basting pins :) Great job on the ironing board cover. Mine is disgusting! I should definitely use your method and make a new one!
Your new ironing board cover is absolutely fresh, bright and lovely. Great pin tin.
I could do with a new cover on mine...Thanks for sharing this yours looks Gorgeous...
Amazing make over. Just fabulous.
Love your new ironing board cover. I do the same thing! I buy the little mini ironing board from Ikea which has ony a really thin cover over a wore lattice. I cut some batting the right size and then put a fabric cover over the top - works great!
