Iron Carrier

Dec 26, 2012

Opened up as an ironing surface

Just finished this today.  It’s an iron carrier (this is not my pattern – TC Designs – I purchased it from Nancy’s Notions).  I wanted to make one – I taught a sewing class at church over the summer and continue to run a sewing group twice a month and I seem to be constantly carrying home a hot iron.  The beauty of this is that it is also an ironing surface.  I discovered that the folded corners make a nice “pocket” to hold the cord.  This carrier was easy enough to create but I would not recommend it for beginners – the directions are not the most intuitive.

    That looks like a brilliant idea! I too teach and find myself carrying a hot iron, could you tell me what you used on the inside? is it heat resistant? Thanks

    Thanks for sharing this great idea and how you've used it... there have been times I've needed a temporary ironing surface and then had a hot iron to take home.
