It was really easy. I layed out some fabric on the floor. Put the ironing board upside down on it and added 3" going around. Cut it out. Hemmed it with a 5/8" channel for cording to go through and an opening at the bottom. Fished some nylon cord through it with a safety pin and put it on. Very simple and satisfying. Now if we could just haul all of my sewing stuff out of the basement and sew outside. It is so pretty today!!
