Mini Ironing Board Tutorial
You’ll find this mini ironing board is such a useful tool to have in the home. It’s a must have for the sewer or quilter, where the constant need to press fabric while working on a project is essential but I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve whipped it out of the cupboard to give an urgently required child’s t-shirt or shorts a quick rub over before they run out of the door.
You can make one cheaply from scratch if you need to, but with any luck you’ll be able to recycle and re-purpose some old materials you have around the home.
What You Need
A sturdy piece of wood, at least ½” to 1” thick, cut to the dimensions you feel would be most useful (I used an old bread board approximately 12 x 15”)
Medium weight cotton fabric for the ironing board outer
Thick felt ironing underlay or a couple layers of cotton wadding
Heat reflective lining material or a piece of old ironing board cover
Heavy duty staple gun/upholstery tacker and staples
What To Do
Flip the board over and you now have one very useful and incredibly portable ironing board.
