Ninja iron Björn

September 11th, 2013

It always boggles my mind that after only a few seconds after the auto shut-off has gone off on my iron, my iron immediately cools off. But when I’ve been out sewing with friends and it’s time to go home and pack up my iron - it stays endlessly hot after unplugging it. I have a nice bag I’ve made for my iron, but I still end up wrapping my iron in an old towel.  Thank goodness I have friends… friends that put up with my iron-woes… super talented friends like Elizabeth that has creative solutions and creates the Iron Cozy pattern.

After watching Violet make her seriously cute iron cozy (in her Waterfront Park) at PMQG sew day last Saturday, I was inspired to get started on mine.  Not only fun to make, but Elizabeth’s pattern is easy to read and understand, (and she’s got really great photos to follow along on because I sew-by-photo).

I used “I AM NINJA” from Robert Kaufman for the sides, and some pieces from my Winterkist collection for the bottom and strap.

I kinda want to make two so I can have a pair of slippers.  One never knows when they’ll come across a bed of hot coals.

A good (and simple) excuse to practice free motion quilting.

I need to work on Oliso iron #6… turns out #5 is a leaker. Maybe #six iron’s the charm.  Not gonna give up, I love that damn iron too much. 

This ninja fabric is so damn cute and makes the iron cozy so squeezably squeezable. And because Ninja is my secret nickname, especially in a blizzard.

Totally squeezable, am I right? Up top.
