Saw this clever tutorial for a portable ironing board over at Oh, Fransson!, and decided that I needed one, too. It's a great little pressing table that can sit next to you and your sewing machine so that you don't have to move very much when piecing and pressing a quilt top.
I made mine even more portable by using a piece of MDF, instead of the T.V tray table.
I also added a piece of non-slip underpadding used for area rugs:
The whole thing fits perfectly on an adjustable height chair that I can slide under my sewing table when not in use!
And I can take it with me the next time i am teaching or taking a class!
Extra notes: the whole thing cost me under $10 to make!
