IRON COZY!!!

I was just so excited when I read Stash Manicure's post for today...Nan from Pots and Pins did a turorial on an iron cozy.

Some of you are thinking...yea right...iron cozy...what next!

How many times have we gone somewhere with our iron, used it and then had to wait for it to cool? Raise your hands...don't be shy....

Well..nip over there, she has a great tutorial.

Now...she says not to leave an opening for your cord...I did...because I wanted to....



make it reversible.



She also used a binding for it...I did not...I just took my pinking shears to it. Yes...call me lazy...(been called worse)...besides "It is my party, I can do what I want"!!

so here is my iron...all nice and cozy....


How fun is this?? Did you notice the flip flops for my ties? Yes, my tie is black, I was going to lie and say it was navy blue...but once again....my party!!!

This did not take long at all, fast and fun.....now I have time to make more...oh yes...I see a whole slew of cozies in my future.

It's really cute. I have a long standing rule - If I have to take my iron, I'm not going! But if I had one of these....

Lookin' great Barb!! What is that goodie included in the pics, the turquoise/blue item?
I seem to find myself having to pack up my iron when it's still warm so none of the little hands in the house touch it. This will be ideal for that.

That is really good Barb and makes you iron pretty enough to keep out on display :) Hugs Vicki x

It sure is your party Barb and you do a good job on everything. That is a great idea I will have to look at it. My iron turns off after so many mins but I hate it because everytime I go to use it it's cold.

Shari said...

I love your very unique iron cozy!

Lynn said...

Thanks for the recommendation. I'm printing out the instructions and will make one soon.
