iron case for travel

This week I am introducing you to an Iron Case for Traveling tutorial from back in the day.

This Iron case is for mini irons….. I love these little things! They are perfect to store in the travel bag to use at your quilting retreat.  It doesn’t take much space and is small enough to keep at your own sewing station.

You will be using two 8″ X 8″ UFO Quilt Blocks for the outside of the bag. {if you have a different size pair of blocks, then adjust the measurements for the lining accordingly}

You also will use a layer of Insulbright- which is a batting that is found in ironing boards…something that doesn’t allow the heat to transfer through.  Because we all know that when we get sewing we never stop until the lights turn out and we are stuffing all our goodies back into the bags hap-hazardly.

So, Head on over to the original post and find out how to make yourself your very own– Iron bag for traveling.
