i'm lining up a couple of projects of a 'stained glass' look. i've read where this little iron is handy for the small applique work (leading in the 'windows'). anyone have any feedback? i've also heard it's a waste of money. it's on sale right now and would be about $13.

thanks for your feedback!

Here's my two cents. I have one and it works fine for me. I use it when doing paper foundation work. I also take it with me to workshops. This way I don't have to keep getting up to go to the ironing board.

I hope this helps with your decision.

I have one and it does the trick for me. I'm glad I got it for my second stain glass piece. :)

My daughter bought this iron for me for Christmas. I had never used it till now. I just started a applique class and it works wonderful. So for my two cents worth, its worth the money. There is no way I would have been able to iron those teeny tiny pieces to freezer paper.

I like mine, it fits where the big iron won't. The newer ones have different tips, which seems like a good idea.

Oooo I want that. the different tips that is, I am going to have to go and look, maybe will fit mine or get a new one. Santa please...

I just bought one and tried it for the first time. LOVE it for all the tiny edges. Word of caution-I didn't put it on the stand when I layed it down-I now have a burnt spot on my ironing board cover. And it was so QUICK! I would EVER leave the room without unplugging it!!!

I use a glass mug or coffee mug to sit my iron in, the glass mug works better as it is deeper. That way if memory goes, which it does about every two seconds, I at least protect my board. Hope this will help you

I have two (one still in the package as it was a gift) and I use it for Celtic, stained glass, and any sort of bias project. It works really great for making your own fusible bias with the clover bias tool and double sided fusible tape. If you see bias in your future, as well as applique, I'd strongly recommend it!
