    my husband made one for me. I love it for ironing all that yardage.
    Mine isn't as pretty as yours though.

    I'm not one of the ladies ... but the tutorial here is as good as any.

    I just ironed more fabric, in a shorter time, than ever before. Well worth the time and little money to put together - what convenience not to have to fight with the narrow end of the ironing board and the added width is wonderful

    I did a search for "pressing board" on here and a few different tutorials came up!! It's real inexpensive to make....between Lowes, Goodwill, and my toolbox...I made one for about $10.

    Me too ... I have a friend that made one out of an unused TV tray and she puts it in the closet when not in use ... I am going to do the same. Should be great for pressing blocks next to the machine.

    Yes, someone here used a wooden TV tray and covered it appropriately and keeps it near her machine. Sounds like a great idea.
