How to sew a new ironing board cover

You know you WANT a pretty ironing board in your FAVE fabric!! It only takes a little bit of time and gumption. It's SO worth it!

All three of my ironing boards are decked out in Jennifer Paganelli fabric because SHE MAKES ME HAPPY with her ART.

The sewing pattern PDF download is here.

Be sure BEFORE you print it out you download it at 100% no scaling.
You probably have one board not three, so check which pages you need to print.
Pages 3-14 are for a regular-size ironing board and pages 15-26 are for an extra-wide sized board.

This is the phat board.

My standard and extra-wide boards were purchased at Target so I don't think they're "special" or anything.
Measurements are given on the PDF download.

If the measurements don't work for you, simply TRACE your board and add seam allowances. So simple right? Then follow the steps in the video.

This is the standard size board.

Here's the less than 5 minutes video:
