Grab an old wooden cutting board from a thrift store, cover. Ta-Da!

I have made the iron caddy pattern and even given a couple away to quilting friends. It holds your iron when traveling as well as serves as an iron surface. Very lightweight.

I cover Insulbrite with fabric. I used some orphan blocks to pretty it. Folds or rolls.

The link only shows 3 photos. There isn't any information.

Thanks

I purchased it from my local quilt shop. When I google it I found the pattern here. Looked like it was free. http://tricountyquilters.weebly.com/..._caddytote.pdf

I made a 36" square -- the top is the silver ironing board material, the center has 1 layer of insulbrite and two layers of warm and natural, the back is a fabric and I sewed ties on one side so I could roll it up and take to class. For several years (until I had room for an ironing board) I just used some cotton that I had. When I moved it went to a friend who didn't have room for an ironing board and I bought myself the gridded pressing board.
