TV Tray removable pressing cover
I saw this post by Elizabeth Hartman showing how to make your own pressing table from a TV table: http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2010/01/a-woman-a-plan-an-inexpensive-tv-tray-new-pressing-board.html
I don't have much space in my craft room and thought this was a great alternative to having a massive ironing board in the way!
I had a tv table myself but did not want to transform it permanently into a pressing table,
so I decided to make a removable one with ties on each corner.
I layered calico, foil, thin batting, two layers of heat proof batting and a top layer of calico.
I bound the section in calico adding ties before sewing on the binding.
I have tried it out and even with the iron on steam the table still feels cool underneath!
Thanks for giving me the idea Elizabeth!
