Bob needed to use the ironing board for clothes (not quilt fabric) so he took everything off it and decided to also remove the top cover due to excess cat fur. He revealed 2 more hideous printed covers underneath which I have left on for padding. My nan bought me a blue floral one for Christmas a few years ago, but when I washed it the elastic disentegrated.
So 2 new ones have been made using Nigela fabric by Amy Butler. Before pics~
A thick decorative fabric, perfect for home furnishings but I think I bought it to make a bag? I got 1 metre of it when at Material Obsession during my trip to Sydney. I have a small amount left, perhaps enough for a cushion.
Using sheeting elastic, I could not get it to gather tight enough to fit snuggly so I have to get some ironing board suspenders to clip underneath. The cover looks great on, I just need to keep it cat free.
