    This is all KellyPA's fault I am not sewing

    I just had to make one. Her idea was just to cute to pass up.

    Thanks Kelly!! I snagged a tv tray off the stand and here it is!

    I made one about 5 years ago and it was the best bit of a quilting notion I have ever put my hands on, it folds away so easy but when I am quilting it is there by my side with my magic travelling iron, couldn't be better. Would recommend everyone to make one, never mind the thrift stores just go and buy a good WOOD TV table, so easy to make.

    A tip, what I did with mine was to make 2 covers from Pillowcase, put elastic around the edge so it slips over the top, easy to take off to launder, well you know what horrible stains and colours ordinary ironing board covers go!

    OK - I guess I'm the lazy one in the bunch. I've used one of these for a few years now but I just wad up an old towel to do my ironing - even on my cutting table where I do the bulk of my quilt ironing. On the little table, I use a wadded up towel with a small cutting mat on it as well, right next to my machine, particularly for paper piecing. And my SIL found the table for me at a thrift shop for $5. No need to steal one of my 'good' tray tables!

    I have one by my machine and I love it. My sister gave me the table. Have an inexpensive lightweight iron with it.

    I did one like that only made the top removeable. My son kept taking it off and using it for his side table so I gave up.

    I picked up a set of trays a few years back for $1 at a garage sale. Made one for myself & a friend. DH used the extra wood/legs to make birdhouses. Win-win all around. Good for taking to class or a retreat if you want ironing space close by.

    You can buy these TV trays at Wal-Mart for about $5.00. You don't have to buy a whole set. The price could be a little higher now, as I got mine about 5 years ago.

    Walmart has the trays for $8 now. Great idea. Thanks for sharing. I usually lower my ironing board next to me but I like the smaller footprint of the tray and it will be stronger than my wobbly ironing board.

    I have one, but not as cute. It sits by my machine with a small iron and is worth its weight in gold for paper piecing.

    Good idea, but not by my chair.

    Having heard so much recently about how bad it is to sit for even an hour at a time, I have purposefully put my ironing board outside my sewing room door. Every time I have to get up to press a seam, I remember that I may be slowing down my sewing, but may live longer to do more of it.

    This is my 3rd ironing board. I have a blood clot in my right lung so I get up every half hour. My husband has a DVT so I roust him up at that time too......LOL if he is at his computer. This is a convenience while at the machine just for pressing small pieces.
