DIY Portable Ironing Board

Posted on February 12, 2016 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (0)

This DIY is inspired by my newly acquired iron, Panasonic 360 Freestyle. With just a few materials, you can iron right from the table top!

I used a 11x14 canvas that I already had in my stash, a heat resistant ironing pad, a few pieces of cardboard and a staple gun. 

*Turn the canvas over and wedge cardboard in between canvas and wood frame. 

*I used duct tape to help secure cardboard. It's okay if it's not perfect; no one will see this side anyway! However, you can cover it with coordinating fabric and staple it to the frame to secure. 

*Turn resistant cover over and center canvas

*Pull edges taut and staple all the way around, securing pad to canvas frame

*Now, you're ready to iron right at your sewing station!

I have to admit, this is one of my faves...a sure way to have mulitple personalized necklaces on a budget! My nieces and daughter loves this project too!

Here's what you need: 

 

  • decorative paper
  • wooden shapes
  • dremel tool w/ 1/8 drill bit
  • ball chain 
  • Mod Podge
First, cut paper to size. Spread Mod Podge covering entire surface. Apply paper. Cover with Mod Podge and allow drying time before applying second coat. Be sure to cover edges to prevent lifting. 

After piece is dry, drill hole in desired location and there ya go!

 

Key Organizer

Greetings, Kuties!

  Just here with a quick and kute idea for key storage.  I got everything from JoAnn's for less than $10 (with coupons, of course)!

Here's what I used:

 

  • 16x20 canvas
  • hooks
  • card stock
  • fabric      
  • Mod Podge     
First, I covered the canvas with  fabric and used my staple gun to secure. Then, using my Cricut, I cut out my last name with cardstock. 

After deciding placement, I applied Mod Podge and allowed drying time. 

Lastly, I screwed hooks accross the bottom of canvas, done! I now have kute wall-hanging key storage!
