It's new! It's fresh! It's clean!
I say I finally got fed up, but I was actually inspired by my friend's new and shiny cover. I saw it yesterday and just knew I had to have a new cover too.
I had fabric and elastic already at home, so I simply laid my board down on top of the fabric and traced around it to get the shape of the cover. Then I zigzagged the edge and made a 1/2" casing for my elastic. About and hour later I had my cover.
And doesn't my iron look happy?
I will admit that pulling elastic through such a long casing was not fun. I was using as large a safety pin as I could and my fingers still got cramped.
But look how pretty it is!
And look at how tight the cover is on the board! It's not going to bunch up on me any more.
