Selfish Sewing Week: Ironing Mat

Selfish Sewing Week: Ironing Mat

My next project for myself was an ironing mat for when I am sewing. I have been wanting one of these so I don’t have to pull the whole ironing board out. I bought the insulated ironing mat batting stuff months and months ago, then just never had time to do something with it– until … Continue reading
