    I am looking as to where to buy 100% cotton canvas to make the top of your own ironing board. Is there any that is extra wide like 60 versus 44 inches wide?

    Here is Chubby Bunny's post "The Perfect Pressing Board"

    I got DH willing and ready to make me one but I need to find the 100% cotton canvas still.

    I use a double layer of muslin and it works just fine. Cheap and easy to replace when needed.

    Most fabric stores carry canvas especially in the summer. Maybe they still have some.

    I would say anything 100% cotton and 'sturdy' would work.

    100% Duck canvas is what I used. fabric.com has it. After stretching the canvas around a board, spray it with water and as it dries it shrinks to fit the board.

    What Bellaboo said. It is 100% cotton Duck canvas,. JoAnes carries it back near the drapery/upholstery section. It comes in many different colors, just be sure it is 100% cotton.

    I buy the canvas at Joann's but I find that I like the silver stuff (I don't know what it's called)it's that heat resistant fabric. I put new layers of batting underneath and then make the top out of the silver stuff, works great.

    I used cotton duck when I made my little ironing table.
