Sunflower Quilts. I love all the projects in this book and I could not wait to get my iron caddy made. I've been hauling my iron around from retreats to sew-ins being careful not to drop it or spill all the water out of it, so this is just what I needed!
For this project I chose Echino Buck in cirton paired with an awesome black text print I love. The two are so fitting for each other plus the black will hide any water stains from my iron.
Everything went great with this...I chose not to put on handles because I normally put my iron in a tote of some sort when hauling.
There is only one thing that went wrong at the very end...apparently I have a huge iron, which I should have thought of because mine has the steam generator built right in. When first reading through the pattern it does tell you it fits a normal sized iron. Well, I must have been delusional thinking that I have a normal size iron...or I wasn't thinking at all because it doesn't fit. SO I made do...
It will now house my Dritz mini travel iron! I did re-sew it a bit smaller just so it wasn't too big but it fits just right! Besides, I needed a carrier for this iron too so it all worked out.
There are a ton of cute little projects in this book..I think my next one will be the giant Sew on the Go Tote featured last week on Jamie's Blog Sunflower Seeds.
