Happily, there are tools designed for such problems.
And here we have the June Tailor Quilter's Cut 'n' Press, which has a small cutting mat on one side and a pressing surface on the other. It's a baby ironing board! (I don't know nothin' about ironing no babies, so hush; you know what I mean.)
Now we just need some steam. The Steamfast travel and crafting iron should be just the ticket. Let's take it for a spin.
Yep, works great! It gets quite hot, and produces audible and visible steam. That fusible is well-fused.
I crawled into bed with some more crochet cotton and a loooooong sashiko needle. This was the result. I think I'm going to make a little zipper bag out of it. That seems to be my default. Everyone likes a little zipper bag, right?
I have a TV table covered with padding and heavy cover. I use it as a portable ironing board and take it with me when I go to a quilting retreat. I put in next to my table and I don't even have to get up to press a seam. This is Peggy not Richard and I am too lazy to type it over.ReplyDelete
That's a good idea! This little Jane Tailor board was a giveaway. I felt a little silly taking it at the time, but now I'm glad I did.ReplyDelete
