MAKING A PORTABLE PRESSING BOARD

I have made several portable pressing boards. I use them when I teach for guilds,  or when I go to a quilting retreat or in my sewing-office for smaller proyects or for a very big project that needs pressing in a small area and I do not want to carry the entire project to the regular ironing board. These are light weight easy to pack and carry.

I used a piece of aluminum laminated insulation board like the one shown below

You can also use blue insulation boards like these

Use a utility knife to cut a piece the size you want

Make sure it is clean, these boards come from dusty places.

Cover the board with two layers of batting
