Have you ever had this problem?  Class has ended.  You have to hurry home, but your iron is hot.  What do you do with the hot iron?

I found the answer when I saw Judi’s little Caddy Pad at a recent Happy Scrapper’s meeting.  So I made my own Caddy Pad, a clever iron tote and ironing pad in one!   This is the Caddy Pad Jr.  There is also a larger size for your big iron.
This adorable tote opens up to become your personal ironing bad.  Great for class or retreat!
This is the other side.  The Caddy Pad Jr. holds a 6” to 8 ¼” travel iron.
Here it is again.  I had picked up a fat quarter while on a recent road trip and used that for the outside of the pad.  The pattern is by Sisters’ Common Thread

ALSO: Be sure and stop by the Great Lakes Modern Quilt Guild blog and read about their virtual activity for this month.  Sounds like fun. 

: Stitched In Color has a tutorial for a gemstone block.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

I've had this pattern (or one like it) forever. I wish I would get around to making it, because I always have this trouble with my hot iron! Love yours!
