Have you ever bought an ironing board cover and it doesn’t quite fit your ironing board? I fixed that problem. Cut a 3″ strip of fabric long enough to sew to the edge of the new ironing board cover. Then fold one of the long edges over about 1/2″ and put a drawstring between the fabric and sew it down. Then sew the other long edge to the edge of the ironing board cover. Place the cover over your ironing board and tighten the drawstring and tie. Now you have a larger cover and it fits perfectly.
