tutorial:: no sew ironing board cover

what you'll need: enough fabric to cover ironing board, a pencil and a hot glue gun.
so this was my ironing board that i use ALL the time...pretty hammered and kind of ugly
i flipped it over and with a pencil i traced around the ironing board, i then cut out it out leaving around an inch and half extra seam allowance so i could easily tug and pull at the fabric to the under part of the board...
i then hot glue gunned the whole thing in a matter of minutes with only a few swear words leaving my mouth as i burned myself with the hot glue...i don't recommend putting your finger on the hot part of the glue gun or on the hot glue that comes out of it either...i got a blister, that was NOT a happy maker. aside from the blister, and the couple of swear words that i now have to repent was an overall super easy and super fast little project, and i've used it already all weekend long... and now its cute instead of drab and ugly!

What a great idea! MIne looks fairly frightening---but maybe not for long, thanks to you!

I am totally doing that tonight. well, maybe this week.... I made a new cover over the summer, but apparently did a lousy job on it because it's been sliding all over the place this week. Hot glue is the perfect solution...easy enough to yank off if I ever decide to recover it again. I've been thinking about wearing gardening gloves when I hot glue....I hate the blisters too.

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
