This instructable can easily be altered to fit any ironing board by adjusting the yardage. All steps remain the same.
It is best to use one piece of fabric that has not been pieced together. Natural fibers such as cotton and linen work best.
Please do not use synthetic fibers as your top surface as they could melt while ironing.
Please read through all instructions prior to beginning this project.
