hello!

i just got a new ironing board and it came with the most ugly board cover.  i could buy another cover but  1.)  i don't really have any money and 2.) i like the idea of re-vamping the one i have somehow.  but!  the pickle for me is, whatever i put on it has to tolerate heat obviously and washings.  anyone have any ideas for that one?  wondering if iron-on transfers tolerate heat?  thanks a bunch!

From what I've read, you're not supposed to iron iron-on transfers once they're on.

I personally know that after a few uses the transfers will actually lose thier stickyness to the board and will come off. I wouldn't suggest using them.
I have made myself and big roll (tailor's ham I think is the right term) and used magazines rolled up and covered it with old wool from a blanket. I have used it for at least ten years now and it's never had a problem with the heat-- although I have when touching it right after heating it!  You might try wool for your problem.
