    I have been looking at this tutorial now for over a year. Last year I went to my first retreat. I did have a table to myself, but still not enough room to put my tabletop ironing board. We had lots of floor space, but I don't want to take a full size ironing board, it's a little trip and I carry a lot of things in my outback for others as well. So, last night I made the tv tray ironing board! It will fit perfect in between a few tables for those that are pressing blocks, freeing up the large boards for bigger pieces and tops!

    super cute and what a neat idea! My husband, daughter, and i live in an apartment and while its a good size, a full size ironing board tends to get in the way. I love it! thanks for sharing! it's wonderful!

    Adorable fabric! I need to make a little cover for my boring tv tray ironing board. I am gla dit worked out well. I am thinking of taking it to sewing class but that would mean I need an iron too.

    That is so neat. I saw one on Better Home & Garden.com. They do not give you instructions. I was also thinking of making one.

    Thanks Natalie, added that to my pages. Since it is garage sale season I should be able to find one fairly cheap.

    I got mine at Walmart also, wooden really nice. I put a layer of foil, then 3 layers of cotton batting, then made a cover with elastic to fit over the top. That way you can take off and wash. Sits beside me at the sewing machine, love it for putting strips, scissors, blocks etc on it. Or your iron..

    I have one of these little wooden TV trays. I would like to use it to make one of these, but I do have a question about them. My seems a little wobbly. Is there a way to make it sturdier? I would hate to have my iron sitting on it -- especially if it's hot -- and have it topple off! :shock:

    I asked my hubby about sturdying mine up some....he will look into it tomorrow maybe. I figure I should have enough room at my table to put my iron, so it will sit there.

    I used one layer of insul-bright and three layers of warm and natural batting.
