Portable ironing board – make one today!

Portable Ironing Board Covers 

Portable Ironing Board Covers

A portable ironing board can be made from two empty fabric bolts, some batting, a piece of heat resistant material, and a little cotton fabric.

Laura Nownes is the Queen of Pressing, so I shared the instructions with her for her blog, See How We Sew.

You can ask your local fabric store for a couple of empty bolts and you’ll be able to make yourself a handy ironing surface for classes or to set next to your sewing machine for those stitch and flip projects.

I used the Insul-Bright heat-resistant mylar/poly batting on top of a scrap of Warm and Natural batting, but you can also sew an insert of ironing board cover material into the front and back of the cover, like one of my students did (below).

All of the directions and pictures can be found here at Laura’s blog, See How We Sew.
