Sew Im-pressed!

For a long time, I have been using custom pressing boards in my sewing studio. A large pressing board sits next to my machine and I just reach over to iron something. I use smaller pressing boards when I make things like doll clothes or hem a pair of pants. They are indispensable. I like having them covered in pretty prints -- why not?!!
So our new pattern, "Sew Im-pressed" is based on this concept (P209). And I added a handle on the top so you can take the board to your sewing class, group, or even your cruise. So why not include a pocket on the back side also so you can carry your grid rulers also -- which are always so difficult to tote along, much less so breakable. It all works so perfect!!

This is Art Gallery's Bonnie Christine's spring line, "Sweet as Honey". Isn't it pretty?!!

I have already made 21 of these boards -- it's insane -- I can't quite! I need a pressing board addiction recovery group! I know you are thinking this is crazy -- but make one -- and see how easy it is to get hooked. Before you know it, you will be making one for everyone you know! in every size imaginable!
