Nothing went to plan last night - you know how it is, other demands on your time - so I finished sewing it together this morning.
The lavender sachet fits inside the pockets at either end. Last year I made a similar set for a dear friend's birthday and she loved it.
Now I have to ask, 'Do you like the fabric in the background?' It's my new ironing board cover. O.K., I know, perhaps it's not that interesting, but I'm very excited. I've been wanting (needing) to make a new cover for some time now and kept putting it off. Today was the day. It didn't take long at all. Even my daughter loves it, she just looked in and told me how good it looked, maybe this tells you just how bad the old one was.
I agree with Carolyn. I'd love a pattern, as I'm in dire need of a new cover for my Big Board (or my regular board) and really don't know how to go about it. Beautiful fabric on yours. (and love the sachet too)

Love the ironing board cover Marg. Makes my ones from the supermarket look rather boring. Maybe we need a pattern :-)
