Iron mat and carrier

My guild offered a workshop this morning to make this fabulous bag which opens to use as an ironing mat and closes to carry an iron that's still hot. I saw this bag being used at a class a while ago and knew it would need to join my supplies. Those blue buttons are ancient and who knows why I bought them!

This is a great way to use quilty print fabrics.

Some of the ladies used colored hair elastics, but I used 1/4" elastic. The inside is insul-bright and one layer of cotton batting. The silver fabric is for ironing boards. 

The pattern is from http://www.sisterscommonthread.com.


  1. Cute! Sorry I missed it. I might need to pick up a pattern and make one myself. If all the cool kids have one, I don't want to feel left out!


Love to hear from YOU!
