Small Iron Caddy

September 15 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Susan Wolfe

We have to haul around so many things when we come to meetings: machines, notions, fabric, cutting mats, ironing surfaces and irons. Packing up is worse because there’s that pesky hot iron to contend with.

Join us to make your own this iron tote caddy. This useful accessory provides not only a way to transport a hot iron, but a surface to iron on during class. One less thing to tote.

For those of you who have already made an iron tote, don’t let that keep you from joining us. We are sharing this opportunity to sew with each other by having Maryhurst bag kits available for you to work on.

Pack a lunch and bring something to drink. Don’t let this opportunity to get together pass you by.

Iron Caddy Fabric Requirements and Pre-class preparation.


Fabric Supplies:

1 fat quarter of your main fabric

½ yard Insulbrite, (cut into 2 fat quarters)

1 fat quarter of heat resistant fabric (silver stuff) [buy ½ yard and split it with a partner]

¼ yard contrasting fabric for binding & handle

6” of ¼ inch elastic

2 buttons

Additional Supplies:

Walking foot and size 90/14 sewing machine needle


This project requires some prep work before you come to class.

From the ¼ yard of binding /handle fabric, cut as follows:

  • Cut 2 strips fabric binding for binding – 2-1/2 inches x WOF. Connect and make into @ 80 inches of binding. Press.
  • Cut 1 strip binding fabric for handles- 3-1/2 inches by WOF.

Sub-cut into 2 rectangles 3-1/2 x 12 inches.

Press pieces in half the long way. Unfold the strips and fold each long edge to the center crease and press the new edges. You should now have two handles, each 1” x 12” with the raw edges hidden in the middle. Top stitch along each edge 0ne – eighth inch in from the edge.
