A pressing problem

So this quilting malarky calls for a fair amount of ironing. Or pressing. I have learnt that the two are different. With ironing, you smooth the iron across the fabric, but with pressing, you lift the iron up and then place it down, because moving the iron over the fabric can stretch it.
Anyway, I digress. Ironing means an ironing board and although I have one, it takes up way too much room to keep up all the time and it’s irritating to repeatedly put it away and take it back out again. So I did a bit of googling and found this pressing mat tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets. It’s really cute and best of all it’s a LOT smaller than an ironing board. So it’s now on my “make it” list.
