How cute is this iron cover from Stitching with Beatrix Potter?
My iron lives on a shelf in the laundry and I often think it could do with a dust cover–so Mrs Tiggy-Winkle seemed like the perfect project! I would love Mrs Tiggy-Winkle in my home–she was most particular about washing, starching and above all, ironing clothes: “And she gave them their nice clean clothes; and all the little animals and birds were so very much obliged to dear Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle.” I constructed my cover with three triangular sections using a pre-quilted calico for the outer covering and quilter’s muslin for the lining.
These instructions were for my Tefal iron that measures 12̋ high and 6̋ wide at the base. Adjust to fit your iron by tracing around the triangular shape of the sole-plate, tapering sides to fit, and adding 2̋ to this tracing (this gives a 1̋ seam allowance which can be trimmed back after basting if it seems too big).
