What are you most proud of? It is so satisfying to do such a quick project where the results and reward are immediate!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Next time I'm going to use elastic rather than the cord because it was so tricky to secure to the board!

This is very inspirational to me as I was just thinking the other day that my ironing board needed a new cover. Thank you for sharing this :o)

I have a question for you about this: I wanted to make my own and thought I had to have special fabric like teflon? Or whatever it is called,maybe something with nomex in it? My question though is about ironing: I was wondering,when you iron something, say a thin cotton blouse or a knit, Doesn't the quilting leave marks or bumps or wrinkles in the item you are ironing? I too would use elastic and make the cover larger than the store bought ones the cord always rips out of the stitching and it is always too hard to get full coverage! I had one in my buggy at Wal-Mart and put it back on the shelf because I was hungry and had to choose.I may make my own but I was worried about using regular fabric. I have a bunch of yards of fabric that is decorator weight with cherries on it and thought this might brighten up my sewing room a bit!
