Our quilt guild , Pinetree Patchworkers , is having another class this month. The last time we had a class I had to cool off my iron in a snow bank. Well there are no snow banks now, thank goodness! So I decided to make myself an insulated iron carrier / ironing mat.
I used this pattern. It came with heat resistant fabric. So all I had to provide was batting and outside main fabric and two buttons. I already had some webbing for the handles, so I was set. I did not even have to make binding as I had some leftover that worked fine. I keep all my leftover binding rolled on paper towel cardboard rolls.
This is a pic of it around my iron...
This is it open and flat, ready for an iron.
I am ready for the class next week and will be able to bring that iron home safely!
