Old to new

Sleeve ironing board
Several years ago I was given a mini ironing board. It didn't look great but how hard can it be to make a new cover? Well, umm, it's surprising how difficult I can make simple tasks become. Complicated is not usually a problem, perhaps my expectations tend to be more realistic. So new cover has been made but alas it doesn't fit quite as tightly as I had hoped.  Never mind. I can make it fit. There's nothing like sewing the blasted thing on with a thick piece of embroidery thread zig sagging tightly beneath to cinch things in a bit. It now works. Of course, this still means that I need to make another cover at some point in the future...
Much improved
