I bought one of these yesterday when I was out (in a bricks and mortar shop).  It is so cute, and - I hope - useful!!!

I got a sleeve board for a present a couple of Christmases ago and now use it instead of my full size ironing board. I can't manoeuvre the big one out of the cupboard. It Is very useful for small ironing and pressing work.

I haven't got this one I have a Leifheit, which costs considerably more than I paid for it now, but they are fabulous for quick jobs.  That one looks a tad too small, but still useful.

Thanks to @Kenora the darksiders have set about making their own. It saves a fortune on steamrollers!  :laughing:

I just press on the top of a wooden bookcase, with an early small quilt on top

How can you press properly over all the seams in a quilt? - unless it's a wholecloth quilt.

@wrenkins  I missed that. Is it a separate thread? I have my own 2 cents to add. Been making my own portable boards of various sizes for years. Have tutored many a local quilter in the method.

It's a tangent on one of the BOM threads - July or August I think.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

@Renegade Sewist it's in the July's BOM thread. We all @Kenora read the instructions and we need to press on a hard surface so chopping boards were brought in.  :laughing:

Yes, looks like a short but wide sleeveboard, which I have one of - and it's out of stock :S

It starts at the bottom of this page.

Mine is 14" x 18", a layer of wadding and topped with a bit of old bed sheet.

I have a table top ironing board from ?Home bargains, a sleeve board that I've had since Adam was a lad and ---- an old cupboard door (top of a fitted wardrobe) wrapped in an old towel and pillowcase.

When I was making all the masks, I looked for something like this.  Best I got was a full size board.  Sadly, the full size was about the same price.

This board looks a lot like a sleeve cap board I have, though.
