    To fit most ironing boards, Walmart has good cotton ones. I have noticed the silver fabric covers there now too. I use a big board so I make my own. I saw the Miracle Covers at Tuesday Mornings store.
    Got fabric?

    June Tailor has a great one, thick cotton fabric with measuring tape and squares printed on top so you can press your blocks on the square. I got mine from Nancy's Notions.

    First of all, my ironing board is an old steel one, with a rectangular piece of plywood on top to give me a nice large surface to work with. First it's covered with a few layers of flannelette ... some that I had and knew I was never gointg to use!

    As for the cover ... I cover it with a FUN cotton fabric. When it needs washing, off it comes and I put a 2nd one on, so I don't have to rush it thru the wash, and can continue on!

    Am I the odd one out in doing it this way?

    My cover is stapled cotton fabric over one layer of cotton batting on a plywood board. I pull off the batting and fabric and recover whenever it gets dirty. I don't even wash it or try to reuse it. I really like using loud prints for the cover.
    Got fabric?

    I make my own with good cotton duck. I don't like the silver covers they retain the heat and send it back to the fabric and if you are using starch, I get scorching. peace
