    I would staple the batting but put elestic on the fabric for easy washing.

    I love her little ironing board! I have a small table top ironing board and always wanted one just a tad bigger. Now I can make my own!

    Such a cute idea! But I also would have stapled the batting/fabric down before adding the feet.

    I actually have one of those ironing pads that you can flip over and it becomes a cutting mat (which I don't use, I only use the ironing side). It's about the same size as the one in the video (and in the end, you probably spend the same amount of money). I love it's portability! It fits perfectly on a wooden tray table that I keep near my sewing table when I'm making blocks that have lots of pieces that need pressing along the way.

    Either board will serve the same purpose - just depends on if you want to make or buy!

    I watched a show when Alex Anderson was on TV and a lady made an ironing
    surface a lot the same way but covered it with canvas (painting canvas) because the material will not deform when ironing. I made it about 5 years ago and it is time for a new top, because I cut on it by accident. It was worked great because it will not let the fabric slip when pressing.
