*DIY Ironing Board*
Finally got around to crossing this project off the list.
What you need -
The process is all about layering. As this board will be used for many years to come, preservation of the board itself is ideal. Before buying the batting, I told the shopkeeper what I plan on making and she picked out the idea one for me.
The size of board is up to your choosing. Personally I wanted one big enough so I wouldn’t have to iron so much, and was also compact enough to lay against my wall for storage.
Start by laying the batting flat then put the board on top of it. Fold the batting unto the board making sure it’s nice and tight. Staple liberally.
Repeat the process with fabric. I used three thick ones that I know I wouldn’t miss. Finally choose a handsome topcoat. This can be thick or thin cotton. Lastly as I folded each fabric over, I made sure to iron each side so it would stay flush on both sides.
Enjoy your new kick ass ironing board and throw away the flimsy shit one you’ve been using for years :-P.
