What materials did you use? A Goodwill high thread count king sized sheet and a crib sized wool batt with Isacord thread. I quilted it on a Singer 500A "Rocketeer" made in 1961.

This is beautiful! I wouldn't mind having to iron if I had that!

Why a "king" size sheet? For length or doubling over? Nice job!

I have a big spool of bungee cord I bought for a project; I needed two feet, and it came in a 50' length. Amazing the number of tasks it gets put to! I used a king sized sheet because I buy big white flat sheets at Goodwill for use as muslins and sewing tests. This was the nicest one I had on hand. I made the pattern by flipping the board upside down on butcher paper and tracing around it, then adding an inch to every edge. I would add at least two inches and plan to cut down if I were doing it again; probably would have if I had watched through Leah's video before starting!

Did you use elastic or string to draw it closed? Thanks!

What a great idea. The quilting is very nice. Your dog is so cute. It really looks like he's sewing!

Much too nice for an ironing board
