Go to quilting tutorials at the top of this page. Once you get to the tutorials click on all videos. Scroll down to row 9. It's the second tutorials from the left.
    I made this board Jenny's tutorial and love it. I really don't have room to store an ironing board so this works out fine for me. When I'm not using it I just slide it behind my table.

    I made an ironing board cover as well. Yesterday I just went and got a vintage ironing board and layered my 24x60 board over the top. My old stand was weak and wobbly, the old ones are the best~they don't make them like that anymore.

    I made mine....cost me about $12 for the board at Home Depot; wrapped batting (Warm and Natural) around it going in both directions and then wrapped fabric around that ....mine fits a portable picnic type table....don't know the exact dimensions and didn't try to fit table..just worked out that way....

    I followed Sharon Schamber's method and made a wide board top for my ironing board. It cost about $15 in materials and I have extra board leftover in case I ever need to make another one.

    Super easy and much cheaper than buying a new board. I can iron an entire width of fabric on the surface now. Binding is pressed quickly. The fabric grips without stretching. I love it.

    Here is my thoughts. Go to JoAnn's with one of those printable 40% coupon that they always have on thier site. Normally they cost around 70 I do believe but with a coupon you can get it cheaper. Also the board I seen has a place built in the board to rest your iron and a shelf underneath to put items. It looks pretty decent I think.

    I have seen them at Walmart for $45.00 and at Costco for $50.00 and at the Quilt Store where I frequent they have them for $90.00. I like the idea of making one but I would get one faster by going out and buying it. The one at Walmart and the quilt store have a wire rack underneath the board part to put your fabric on and a place on the side for you iron. The one at My Costco only has the place for the iron on the side. Good luck.
