DIY: easy Sleeve Ironing Board

How to make a sleeve board?

I always want a sleeve ironing board. I got lucky the other day when browsing stuff in an op-shop and found a old and dirty sleeve board. It give me the wood board and the metal leg so I don't need to cut them myself.  But if you can't find one, HERE you can find out how to make them your own.

Step 1. Here are the materials your need:

  • the board and the leg (on the left in the photo)
  • Webbing tape 
  • Calico (or other cotton fabric) 6 inch width
  • Staple gun
  • 5mm thick foam sheet 

Step 2. Cut calico to the board. You need the a piece for the top cover but another piece for the back cover. Also cut form to the shape of the board, allowing 1.5 inch away from the edge of the board.

Step 3. Staple the back fabric to hold them in place.

Step 4. Fold the top fabric and the foam to the back of the board. Staple as you go.

Step 5. Trim off excessive fabric.

Step 6. Fold the fabric edge inward and staple.

Step 7. Staple the webbing tape to cover the edge of the fabric.

Step 8. Screw on the leg.

Dah Dah. It's done.
