I've been working on reorganizing my quilt room and one of the things I have done is taken out my big 18" wide ironing board. It was taking up space that I could use for something else. I went to the hardware store and bought:
18" x 48" board
Batting 22" x 52"
1/2" ironing board cover fabric. (I got this from Jo-Ann's)
(Sorry for the bad lighting)
Ironing board fabric being wrapped in the same manner as the batting. Just remember to tuck your corners and make them look nice.
I made this for about $15.00. Very quick and simple to do.
By making this ironing board I now have usable space under it. As before there was no real usable space. If I need to I can still pull out the other ironing board, but there is no real need to because this one is big enough to handle yardages of fabric.
I'll be sharing with you other things I have done in my quilting room to give me more space.
If you make one of these I would love hear about it.
Until next time,
