    Well, since Hubby found a TV Tray set made of wood at an Estate Sale and only needed two of them, I decided we'd make a couple of small Ironing Tables out of the other two for our Garage Sale next weekend.

    They took about 45 minutes each for us old folks to do. And the prep time was about 20 minutes total. I think they came out nice! We will see if they sell for $20.

    Thanks for looking!

    It will be interesting to see how many people know what they are. Let us know how your sale goes.

    I will have an information sheet on it, so they don't have to ask...WHAT IS THIS?

    Those are great. They should definitely be worth $20.

    Great job. I just got this idea at our LQS. Did u use the Insul Bright with it? I think they are a great idea and will prove very useful. They will be pretty handy for retreats and certain classes. Enjoy yours !!!!

    i've got one of these tables that i have to sit my sewing machine on if i want to sew in my camper. i'm moving home next saturday (yaayyyy) and since i wont need the table for that anymore i'm gonna make one of these. it is such a great idea and i bet it's gonna be so useful. expecially since i just ordered one of those mini irons.

    i wonder how it would work if i put elastic all around the top fabric? if it would stay on well. that would make it easier to remove if you had to wash it. and between my startch usage and the fusibles i usually need to wash mine pretty often.
