I'm so proud of myself for finally getting this project accomplished. I have a small portable ironing board that was in SAD condition!
|The sheet was rotten and shredding off. There was no padding.|
Since I'm teaching my first sewing class tomorrow (so excited!!) I figured it was about time to get it done. Here's a couple helpful tutorials I ran across Super Easy and Simple Recovery. I decided to use a chunk of wool I had been given for my birthday a couple years ago as padding. Apparently wool is great to hold steam and reflect it back into your work. I had a chunk that felt half felted and was too small and heavy to make into a garment.
|I folded it in half and trimmed it to shape doing some clipping for a tighter|
fit around the board.
Many staples and a few safety pins later I had a nicely recovered ironing board. I stapled the padding down first then the fabric. Everything was pulled extra snug.

Well done, looks great! It is still snowing here in Norway as well - arrggggh!
Good luck tomorrow!
We're so thankful for the moisture here but I am very tired of the cold and wind.
My class went very well and I'm so excited!! That's a job I could do every day!
Thanks for commenting!
Love it! I can't wait to hear more about your class!!
Welcome back! I love how your new ironing board looks! I need to recover mine, but it's a metal back so alas, stapling won't work.
Thanks! It was a great trip but it was good to get home. I'm in love with the little thing! I was pretty tickled when I realized I was going to be able to staple it. Good luck on your metal one! I'll have to redo my metal one soon too so post any good tips you learn! :)
IT WAS AWESOME!!!
