FINISHED-ON FRIDAY


When I was at Quilters by the Sea’s January workshop, I noticed that the irons were the last things to get packed.  They just need to cool down enough before packing.  So, as we waited around for them to cool a bit more, I thought that perhaps we needed some iron cozies.  And, I remembered I had pinned a cute one on Pinterest.  And, in fact, made one for my own travel-size iron.

 
It is basically a large Humbug Bag.  LuAnn Kessi, of May Your Bobbins Always be Full, has an excellent tutorial you can find here.  Her tutorial is for travel-size irons and I adjusted it to fit larger irons. It was another good use of some fat quarters and zippers that I had on hand.  Now when we pack up, it should go just a little bit faster.  I hope you

Quilt happy,
Marilyn

Very nice.

I love the fact that it has a zipper, I made one that just has a pull string around the base of the iron...and I love the colors.

I love it! I really need to make one of these too. I've seen the other types of iron bags and wasn't too crazy about them. Oh, almost forgot - Congratulations on getting RUBY!!

It is funny how irons are the last thing to get packed. I've actually driven home with a warm iron on my lap, for fear of letting it burn anything. I definitely need to make an iron tote.These are so cute.

Did you write down the larger measurement by any chance?
