I have a sewing machine cover I made a couple of months ago, so I only need the ironing board cover. It will make a great companion to have a matching cover for my ironing board.
Thanks for sharing I hope to get started on it soon. I am busy with my daughters wedding right now and will be for the next year. I am a DIY do I want to do as much as I can ahead of time.
Donna Lowe –
This is a great pattern for any beginners. It is also a great way to start coordination your sewing area or just to replace the old cover while enjoying your hobby.
Jenni Elizabeth Early –
I have always wanted to make one of these, but never taken the time to figure it out for myself! Rebecca Page has done all the work for you. Now you can make a custom ironing board cover just the way you want it 🙂 And this is a super-easy sew. No pattern pieces to print, so it’s even faster. Less than an hour cut to done!
Pamela Turner Munnerlyn –
A very easy sew to do. I had been wanting a new one and I just love it so glad that I made this pattern.
Karla Henrichs –
Easy to make. The cover to Mr less than an hour from printing, reading instructions to putting it on my ironing board. This was fun to make.
Sseem Sing –
Awesome sew and super useful!
Mireille Ribiere –

I’ve been needing to replace my ironing board cover. So happy to have been able to make this! It was a quick, easy sew.

This is a super simple way to update any ironing board! Give your board a new lease of life in under 1 hour. I left the old cover on for extra padding & added a layer of quilt batting. I used upholstery fabric so it will be hard wearing.
Erica L Oswalt –
Such a fast and rewarding sew! I have had an old disgusting ironing board forever, and I’ve always wanted to cover it. I used insula-brite batting and Rifle Paper Co. cotton to give the board new life. I cannot wait to take it to sewing group on Monday!
Diane Cullum –
It wasn’t bad at all. I don’t know why I was dreading the thought of making a new cover for so long. The elastic on my old cover was still great so I was able to re-use it.
Julie McBrien –
This is such an easy tutorial to follow. I made 3 covers using this tutorial. My ironing boards not only match but I saved quite a lot of money making my own. The tutorial is really easy to follow and explains how to customise it for individual sizes of boards. I made a full size cover, one for my table top iron and also one for my sleeve board.
Yolonde Bates –
What a fabulous pattern. Suitable for beginner sewers. Simple, easy to understand instructions. A very fast sew.
Paula Crebbs –
This was an easy sew. The pattern wasn’t so much of a pattern but instructions on how to measure your existing ironing board to make a new cover for it. I loved being able to choose my own fabric to coordinate with the rest of my sewing space. It was relatively simple but I struggled slightly with creating a casing on the curve.
Stephanie Springer Leddy –
This was a really fast sew – in fact I think I spent more time threading elastic through the casing than measuring, cutting, and sewing! I liked that the pattern could be adapted to fit any size board because that meant I could make matching covers for our wall-mounted pull out large board (which isn’t a standard size) as well as its accompanying sleeve board, which has never had a cover before! My husband is very excited that he’ll now be able to use the sleeve board when ironing his shirts 🙂
Jenny Gomez –
This was a quick sew that gave a cheap facelift to my old ironing board. I’d been looking for a new ironing board or cover for a while and was not really excited about anything I saw. This allowed me to pick fabric that goes with the vibe of my sewing room and really brought new life to my space
June Butchee –
The instructions in this pattern are great. I never knew I could make my own Ironing Board Cover! I’ve been needing a new one for years and just haven’t wanted to spend the money on a new one. Then I found out about this pattern. I just used some fabric from my stash that I’ve had for years. Now my Ironing Board looks so good! It doesn’t even take much time. It took less than an hour to measure and sew. What are you waiting for? Make your own new Ironing Board Cover. You’ll be glad you did!

Beginner friendly pattern and super easy to make! The best part is no printing pattern needed. Yay!
Becky McGill-Wilkinson –
This ironing board cover was super easy! It took less than 30 minutes to cur and sew and put it on my ironing board and I love that it shows my personality!
Pamela Stump –
This beginner-friendly pattern quickly walks even a novice sewer through the steps to make a custom ironing board cover for any size ironing board – from the smallest sleeve board to the biggest “big board!” Why put up with a torn or stained board cover when you can make a replacement this easily?
Cristy Alexandra –
Very easy sew. Excellent result.
Jamie Adler –
Clear instructions and precise fit! Great 30 minute project! Change your ironing board cover and maybe you’ll enjoy ironing more. ?
Karen Greenhalgh –
“Well after seeing this pattern I can’t believe it never crossed my mind to make an ironing board cover! My old cover had a rip in it and was boring but now it looks great and no one else will have one the same.
It took less than 30 minutes! ?? Brilliant pattern, and I’ll be updating my large ironing board next.”
Intan Sofiano Sofia –
Easier pattern, clear instruction and easy to make it in any size you want to make it.

I swear i will be sewing more iron covers because it is super easy!
