A VERY QUICK PROJECT...
I have wanted one of these pressing boards FOREVER! For the past four years I have been using the fold up ironing board that J had in college...and even that takes up too much room on my table! However, I really didn't want to spend any money on the supplies to make a smaller version.
Today J was helping us purge through some things in the garage. We came across an old shelf that was headed to the trash pile. I asked J if he would cut off a portion of the shelf, which he was more than happy to do. I used a scrap piece of Warm and Natural directly on top of the board and topped that with a scrap piece of InsulBright. Since we don't own a staple gun (and I'm not about to buy one, LOL) I used duct tape on the back of the board to hold the batting and InsulBright taut. Then I found a bright piece of fabric, wrapped it all around and duct taped it in place. I think MAYBE if I am very careful with pulling off the tape on the fabric, I MAY be able to wash this cute little button cover if it gets dirty. If I can't salvage it to wash and replace...I'll just wrap it with a different piece of fabric and once again hold it in place with duct tape! Between MacGyver and J...I've learned to love the stuff!!!
