I went to a patchwork class, it was great don't get me wrong but there were 6 of us sharing an ironing board. We were using lots of fusible bondaweb, things were getting tense!
So it had been in the back of my mind for a while to make a portable ironing caddy cum pressing mat thingy. I duly purchased some cheap ironing board covers, a cheap travel iron, googled iron caddy tote thingy and off I went :-)
I didn't print out the pattern from the above link I just drew out the measurements onto the ironing board cover, it doesn't need to be exact.
This is what it looks like folded up.
Folded out we have a nifty pressing mat
All in all it took just under two hours and I think it is ACE :-) I can leave this in the back of the car and it's always there for me.
