At the start of the month, two of us in our bee made bags to carry our irons. This is a pattern that's been passed around our bee quite a bit and I think about half of us have made this bag now! I was so excited to pull out some of my Mary Engelbreit fabric to use for this project! I am a huge hoarder of this fabric because I love her art so much, so I am glad to have some which I can use and see every time I take my iron with me. I thought the travel fabric was appropriate since I will most often use this bag for sewing days or retreats.

The third part of my iron story is that I built an ironing station. After my retreat, I decided that I really wanted one to give me a bigger ironing surface and to give me some storage underneath the iron, which is hard to do with an ironing board.
