For my very first blog post, (I am a blogging virgin....) I am sharing an item that I made this week. I belong to the local Quilters' Guild and each month we have a work day, where we bring our sewing machines and either work on our own projects or make a project to sell at our quilt show in April. There is nothing like a room full of friends, sewing machines buzzing, with all of us chatting up a storm. This week, our very own, very talented, Linda G., led us in creating this tote for our travel iron. This little beauty will be perfect for carrying our iron to classes and workshops. It is lined with that silvery Teflon ironing board fabric, and when open, it doubles as a pressing surface. I will be donating this one to the Guild, for sale at our Quilt Show, but can't wait to make one for myself.
Fast forward... I have finished making my own tote. It's red, of course. And you can see how it unfolds and opens up for pressing. It's perfect!
