The worst culprit is my IRON!! You have to use it right up to the end, then you have to wait for it to cool down and delicately place it in your car so it doesn't burn or melt anything. At least it used to be... I'd like to introduce you to my iron's carrying case.
|What? You do not understand it's full gloriousness? Let me show you more!!|
|You take that heat resistant fabric, heat resistant batting, regular batting and fabric and layer them together. Quilt and bind.|
|Your iron sits in the middle and you do a bit of creative fabric folding to get this...|
|A handy carrying case!|
|Buttons and elastic loops hold the layers|
together. We also added a loop and button to hold
the cord outside, because we don't want to melt
|Hey little buddy! How ya doing in there! You ain't gonna burn my new car now!!!|
I keep using "we" because our whole group made these on one sewing day. One of the ladies had figured it all out and showed us how to do it. It was such a relaxing day and a super useful, yet fun, project. I've used mine several times and it works FABULOUSLY!!
Do you take your sewing on the road? How do you transport your iron?
