    Default Iron case

    A nice tutorial for an iron case with a handle. It would be fun for a retreat project.

    I don't know if it is my age showing, but when I first saw the case it made me think of canned ham!

    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?

    lol The fabric didn't sell it very much. The tute was good though.

    It does look like one of those old canned hams! My cordless has a nice case it came in. I also have another my sister made me that folds up and around the iron. Only problem is you have to empty the iron if you use that case because the water leaks out of the iron and makes a big mess in your car! Yes....it happened.

    I made the one that folds out into a ironing pad. It is bigger than my travel iron, but a perfect sized pad. I can tuck my thread catcher in there too.

    It does look like a canned ham! I'd think about putting some of the silver, heat-resistant material on the inside where the iron would come in contact with the case. That way if the iron still has some heat when you pack up, you won't scorch the case.

    Thanks, Lorie, this is darling! I, too, thought of a canned ham. I'm going to make one of these, but in a FUN fabric.

    This one does remind me of canned ham also. I made the one that folds up around the iron when I was teaching and had to take an iron for students to use. As I would not take my good Panasonic cordless. Good thing to because some put the first cheapy iron down on the interfacing upside down , what a nasty stinky stuck mess. had to toss the iron and get a new cheapy one. Sometimes people make me wonder. here is a pic of the one I made.
