A few days ago, I had a couple of ideas to use ironing sheets for more than just ironing.
I also wanted to try out a DIY ironing machine that uses a metal strip to cut out the template for a design.
And, of course, I wanted to make a DIY cover that would make my ironing process look like it’s happening right now!
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to make this DIY cover using a sheet metal fabric, which I’ll use for my template.
First, the fabric I’m using.

2 yards of cotton or polyester for the cover.
1-inch thick fabric tape for the top and bottom.

The adhesive should stick to the surface of the fabric, not stick to your fabric.
This is important.
When I used this adhesive, I didn’t apply it to the entire fabric, just the edges.
I did this so that the template wouldn’t be too fragile, so that I wouldn’t have to sand or re-glue it.
Here are the instructions for the instructions.
The label says to use 3-1 and 1-2 yards for the two sides, and 1 1⁄2 yards and 1 yard for the bottom.
The fabric I used in the template was 2 yards polyester fabric, so I added about 2⁄4 yards.
I didn, however, use a 1⁁-ounce bag of fabric tape as the template, and I didn
