    Default Re: Ironing Board Question

    I made mine using Jenny's tutorial and I keep it next to my sewing machine. Sometimes when I get tired of sitting, I move it on top of the ironing board and use it there. It's become an essential part of my quilting tools and I couldn't do without it.
    It's all fun and games until the bobbin runs out.

    I have two - a small one that can hang on a Hanger when we are traveling, yet sets up nicely for small blocks. When I go to iron a larger quilt I use the normal size board and it's still not enough room hahaha I need the exercise of getting up after making blocks, so put my ironing board on the other side of my sewing room - yep, quilting = Exercise to me :-)

    I made one out of an old cabinet door. It is heavy but stays right where I want it. I used an old towel to cover it, then batting and then fabric with fleece on the back to protect my sewing table.. I have to make case for it so I can wash it but other than that it is perfect for what I need. I love the tv table ones though.

    I made mine. My husband cut a piece of light weight plywood, I think it was 1/2'' and I wrapped it with an old towel and then made a slip case out of musslin as the out side cover. I have my sewing set up in our bedroom/school room/office so my area is also very limited. My board lays on part of the table/desk and is easy to move off for when I need to put my cutting mat on it for cutting out quilt pieces or batting. It is also very close to my sewing machine for when I need to press seams. I just swing my chair and I am there. I have pics in my album.
    Be blessed,

    God has a plan and it is a good plan.

    I have the end piece of an old wooden CD rack wrapped in a towel that I use for ironing blocks. It's about 7" wide by 24" long, and light weight enough for me to slide right in front of my machine to press rows.

    I can't really use my ironing board as it's meant to be used because it's an over-the-door model, and my doors are too tall. I'd be pressing at armpit level.
