My DH has made me the most wonderful little ironing table. I am going to buy the fabric to make the cover tonight or tomorrow. My question is if any heat resistant fabric would work, or if it MUST be something specifically for ironing etc (like the silver fabric typicaly used on ironing boards). I see others have used muslin over wool blankets, and some have used warm & natural batting. But, I wondered if I could use fabric that is listed as heat resistant and intended for sun shades, etc? I kind of wanted some fun fabric to cover it. Thanks for the input.
