My MIL (a porcelain doll maker) asked me to make an ironing caddy/portable ironing mat for another doll making friend of hers. I had made my MIL one a few years ago, that she takes to doll classes/conventions/competitions with a mini iron in it. Of course I said yes. She purchased the fabric and notions required and then posted them to me. I duly procrastinated on starting it. It is hard to sew for other people when the fabrics aren't what you would pick yourself
Last week I finally started working on it, a little bit here and there. The part that took the longest was actually marking out all the measurements for stitching. I used a white colour pencil for this, all my other fabric markers didn't show up on the heat resistant fabric. Over the weekend just gone, I finished the machine sewing and then was able to work on the binding and buttons in the evenings.
I haven't included a photo of the caddy unfolded, it was very hard to photograph silvery fabric and get a decent photo.
My "must makes" for other people are done, so now I can get back to my never ending wip list.
