My dear husband built an awesome table for my quilting room ironing board. It has a large flat surface and lots of storage space. I made an easy cover for it using some Ironing Board Cover Fabric from JoAnn's.
The fabric has an aluminzed coating to give it a smooth, resilient surface.
I put two layers of cotton batting on the table top and made the cover to fit over it all. I put elastic on the corners. I just finished it and look forward to using it soon!
For a future project I am going to make hot pads with scraps from quilts and use some of the cover-fabric for the back of the hot pads...
