Iron doll clothes with a mini ironing board

It would be fun to iron doll clothes on a teeny weeny scale 1:6 ironing board, but very fiddly! Thankfully, as I mentioned in my Laundry Tips post, you can strike a happy medium between doll size and human size, with a sleeve ironing board. This is much smaller and narrower than a full size board.

I have just listed a Prym sleeve ironing board in a new section (called Crafty Kit) on my eBay shop.

It narrows down to around 7cm at one end which makes it easy to pull on and smooth down a scale 1:6 skirt or top.

The Prym brand board is light weight and folds up easily to carry. You can use it on a table top or on top of your regular size board.

The cover is reversible: you can use the grid marked side for dress making - just press a seam or hem along a guide line, ready to sew.

The other side has heat reflective material for high temperature ironing (good for cotton and linen).

It's the pro way to iron doll clothes.
