Newest 'old' ironing board!


Say hello to my new 'wide' ironing board.
Yes it has a rather strange shape compared to what we are used to here in the US.
This baby hails from Italy.

This is a wide end, sort of like my wide end! ;-)
It measure's 18" wide by 27" !
Nice pressing area for sewing!
No stains or tears on cover just need to tie it off on the bottom!

It totes a small friend on the underside!

T
She pops up to help iron sleeves or seams when sewing!
How cute is that!


All this for just $6.99 at the local DAV Thrift Store.

Stay tuned for yet more 'ironing' news!
Yes a HOT TIME at the ...and Sew On 'studio'!

I do not know where you can get a cover for this ironing board!  If you find a source please let me know ad I will post it here.
My advice is to use a board cover tutorial (lots found online so do a search) and make your own.
A bed sheet or other nice wide piece of fabric will do. 
Good luck and thanks for popping into too this post!

  6. Never saw a board shaped like that. Interesting. My hubby made me a extra wide "big board" which I use for everything I press. Love it!

  7. I have an ironing board just like this but I can't find a new cover for it. My ironing board is 57" long total and the wide part is 18" wide by about 30" long thanks Marnie

  10. I just found one today at my favorite thrift store. Ten Dollars. So sturdy. My linen spray doesn't fall on the floor. I can't imagine it would be that difficult to make a new cover. Use old one as pattern, Pull string through seam to tighten. Voila.
