Question for (Sewing) crafters--

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Does anyone know an alternative to using batting for a home-made miniature ironing board? I can't believe how expensive it is, and I only need a piece that's about 20"x 14". Batting by the yard starts at over $7...and packaged batting is often more expensive...and I'd probably never use any more of it. (I'm truly not a "cheap" person. I make many many dolls which I donate, and I pay for all the materials. Sometimes it gets very expensive, and we live strictly on social security. So I think I'm just trying to be frugal).

I love the idea of having a small ironing table and miniature (travel) iron handy when I'm sewing my little dolls. What a help it would be!

I plan to hit all the thrift shops in town after the snow clears. Perhaps someone has a small piece I could buy. (I have the same problem with material. Nobody sells actual small material scraps).

So here's a picture of what I'd love to make. I have this exact t.v. tray already!


And if anyone is interested in doing this, here's the link!
