Also, I have never loved it, as it has weird pink streaks as a design, that never look like anything but weird pink streaks and look very odd in tutorial pics taken on my ironing board.
Anyhoooo…. Way past time to make a new cover!
But, for some odd reason, I have been procrastinating over this project! But the universe & Pinterest conspired to get me cracking on it. While browsing Pinterest earlier (Hello, my name is Di, I am a Pinterest addict) I came across THREE simple tutorials for new covers. Only to discover that my cover could simply be removed, the string loosened creating a perfect template for a new cover! No tutorial needed!!
I simply backed linen with good quality felt interfacing (from CeKa) and used bias tape to create a channel for the elastic. Done in 30 minutes! The only tedious task was threading said elastic through channel!
Isn't she pretty?
Oh how I adore linen!!
All you need for this project:
A length of fabric; a length of good quality thick interfacing - my felt one was not quite wide enough, so I simply sewed two lengths together; elastic; a toggle to hold the ends of the elastic (or you can tie a knot, but a toggle is easier to loosen to remove cover to launder).
It could not be simpler!!
