I've been trying so hard to get some sewing done this year, but it's been quite thin on the ground so far, the first quarter of this year is nearly gone already....it's going by soooo fast.....life...please slow down a little! I did however manage to get to a sewing club get together and we made a "Hot Iron Caddy", the idea being that at the end of a class, we can pack up our iron and not have to wait for the iron to cool down to be able to go home. It can also be used during class to iron on. It is very, very simple to make, and is lined with a thermal fabric, especially for irons etc. It is basically just a rounded square, thermal fabric on one side, cotton fabric on the other, sandwiched together with wadding, and quilted, then the edges bound, a handle added, and some buttonholes and buttons to do it all up. A nice quick project completed in class, other than a little hand sewing of the binding, which I did when I got home.
