Here's what Chasity said about her tutorial: ~If your like me your ironing board winds up dealing with some dirty deeds during your crafty multi tasking. I love crafty ironing tactics like Wonderunder and fusible webbing but I hate the gooey residue it leaves on my ironing board cover(I know I should be more careful, but who can be careful when your creative genius has taken over).
So needless to say...one ironing board cover will not suffice( and 2 irons is not a bad idea either, pick up your extra one at the thrift or a yard sale). It just seems silly to spend $10-15 for an ironing board cover for gooey messes when I always have old full size sheets stock piled. I have been meaning to make another cover for about a year. I even had a pattern for it but, that too seemed a little tedious when I wanted to be making clothes or anything else. I recently relocated and reorganized my studio and it just seemed wrong not to give my board a new cover( since my old cover is just a mess). During the last few weeks of trying to sew in a disheveled studio I laid one of my sheets on the board, to protect from the messes. I broke down last night and turned that sheet into a super quick and easy cover. And then I made another one to show you how.
