Today, I sat down to sew and realized I needed a new little ironing surface for small projects. I like to keep a small ironing “board” by my sewing machine so that I’m not always having to get up and go to my full-size ironing board. It saves tons of time! I wanted to share this frugal way of making one.
are the things you’ll need:
mat, acrylic ruler, and rotary cutter
machine, thread, scissors
piece of thin plywood
fabric (I used a piece of a cotton sheet that I bought at a thrift shop)
piece of Insulbrite (or two pieces of cotton quilt batting) that measures the
same size as the board you cut (Insulbrite can be bought at Joann’s and other
knife for cutting the plywood
follow the instructions below each photo to make this project! If you have any questions, please leave them
