Oh you clever girl! I love that ikea fabric. My ironing board cover is hideous and plastered in various bondaweb accidents...so this is definitely on my to do list!

Just lovely! It almost (almost) makes ironing fun!

I just bought a table top ironing board and it definitely needs a new cover!! This will be near the top of my to-do list now!!! Thanks for the inspiration!!
