This is my sewing and ironing area:
I use an old towel over the table as an ironing mat. I'm sure it's not a great idea and sometimes the towel is stuck to the table and leaves chunks of pink fuzz behind. It's lovely really. On my last fabric shopping trip to Lancaster, PA I found this iron carrier/ironing pad and thought it was a great thing for me to make!
However once I got it home I realized it's for a travel size iron not my regular size iron! So I decided to just make an ironing pad, no iron caddy and use it instead of the old pink towel. While in Lancaster I also bought this mini jelly roll just because I liked the colors.
I ended up with a subway tile pattern ironing pad! And I love it!
It really makes my sewing/ironing area look like less of a mess and better yet there are no pink fuzzies left stuck to the table after I iron something!
Have you made anything to help clean up/organize you crafty space lately? I'd love to hear about it!
Wishing you big waves and an artful day!
