It Works As a Pressing Pad, Too!

This clever caddy was designed for toting an iron. It’s perfect for traveling and for quilt retreats and classes.

The caddy opens up into a pressing mat. That also means you don’t need to wait for the iron to cool before packing it up. Nice!

There are a few tips that help with making the caddy. One is to use stretchy hair bands for the elastic. They look nice and will wear well.

We were unable a locate a free pattern for the travel iron size (Caddy Pad Jr. Tote). However, patterns for both sizes can be purchased from Amazon. They include the required piece of silver heat-resistant lining.
