Welcome Danielle, she is sharing how to make a custom DIY ironing board. Table top ironing board is a great substitute to iron without ironing board. It is portable and can be placed on top of any flat surface for ironing like wooden or tile floor or table. A carpeted area or bed can also work. You can place it on kitchen or bathroom counter as well. The best material to make ironing board is 100% unbleached cotton or teflon ironing board covers.
My name is Danielle and I am the creator of the Minimoz blog. I am really excited to be here today. Thanks Hani! The real minimoz’s behind my crafting is Zac 4 and Ella 2. I love the inspiration I get from them.
Today I am showing you how to make handmade,
Portable Table Top Ironing Board.
I have a small laundry and keep my ironing board away in the cupboard. I love to sew but hate that I have to get the ironing board out for a small project. This new ironing board is perfect!
I even leave it next to me while I’m sewing.

Thanks for such a useful idea to make a table top ironing board.
I love it because it makes ironing easy. And is a great idea for small spaces.
Use 100% cotton fabric And 100% cotton batting.
Synthetic blends are a fire hazard. Avoid using foam and other synthetic stuffing for ironing boards.

Love the concept. I suggest using 100% cotton batting instead of the foam. Foam is highly flammable as it is synthetic. The fabric also needs to be 100% cotton. A synthetic blend fabric is also a fire hazard.
Another good option for fabric is the silver teflon coated fabric made for this purpose. It helps reflect heat back onto what you are ironing for a very efficient ironing.
