Custom Made Top Will Lift Off Whenever You Want!
Once you have this ironing board add-on you won’t know how you lived without it! It’s perfect for ironing yards of fabric, large quilt blocks, quilt tops, tablecloths, curtains and more.
The extension built of wood fits securely over your existing ironing board. According to the designer, Diana Beaubien of Pleasant Valley Creations, the weight of it will stabilize an ironing board that’s a bit wobbly (you may want to get a sturdier ironing board if yours is super wobbly). Plus, you can remove it easily and store it should you need to do so.
To make this you’ll need some experience with a drill, screwdriver and staple gun. A lumberyard or home supply store, like Lowe’s or Home Depot, will cut the wood to size for you.
The pattern also includes instructions for a padded cover.
The finished board is 22″ x 60″ but you can easily adjust the size to fit your needs.
You may want to cover your board with that gray ironing board fabric. You can purchase Heat Resistant Cloth Silver Fabric by the yard here.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
