OPAM - Table Top Ironing Mat

I was given a mini hot iron for Christmas and it prompted me into making something that I have been thinking about for ages.
In the attic it is not easy getting a full size ironing board up the curve if the stairs so a table top ironing mat seemed to be in order.
I still had a few quilt blocks to use up and by adding a few more rows around the outside I made it big enough for most jobs that could be ironed on a table.
I put a loop in one corner so that it can be hung up when not in use.
I added one of my labels for posteritiy.
Just big enough for applique, quilt blocks and adding bond-a-web nd taking to workshops and classes.
Hanging up when not in use.
Next is a little pouch to keep all of the interchangable tips that come with the mini iron.  Use a another quilt block, I think.

What a great idea. I don't mind ironing but using something as lovely as that must make the task even easier.
