Aah...I suspected that that's what you have. I love mine because the legs have that curve to them so you can sit to use it without banging your knees. I set it up next to my sewing table and put one of my "big boards" on it, and I can press as I sew. I use it more for a work surface than just an ironing board.

Yep, that's the cover I bought too. Remember I said it didn't fit well? My advice...buy the pad, use it for a pattern and make a cover.

The link that Rhonda K posted also has the covers for Mary Proctor boards.

I sometimes buy a new one. Sometimes, though, I just lay the old one right side down on some new fabric and sew around it

Thanks everyone for the great links! I'm going to have to inspect Mom's ironing board next time I visit to see if it is in fact a Mary Procter. I've never actually seen it with the wings extended, as she hasn't had a cover that fit that way in my lifetime. After looking at some pictures, it seems likely - it has the curved legs and little wheels that the Mary Procter boards had.

Try Amazon. I have the double flip.

But for that price I made my own. Not that hard.

Your so welcome Jordan. I hope you find what you want for the fabric to make yours.

I took my old one off and used it as a pattern. I used material with Lines on it so I could make sure I kept everything straight. Works great.
