Make a Pressing Board

A new pressing board almost makes me want to press something. Almost.

This week I finally got fed up with using a rickety old ironing board and made a new pressing mat. It is an easy project with satisfying results. I have a BIG applique project in the pipeline and need a good-sized spot to work.

My husband picked up the 2′ x 4′ precut plywood at Home Depot and he thinks it cost about $23. The batting was about $10, the two yards of cover fabric cost about $9 at a local surplus store and the towels were free. So. . . this bad boy cost about $42 but is sooooo much nicer to use.

Watch the video and let me know what you think.

By the way. . . I had no idea how many times the dogs walked around- or how long Broddie was watching out that back window on Squirrel Patrol. Pretty funny!

What are your thoughts?
