A Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive
The 5.5” x 9” Wool Pressing Mat absorbs heat, pressing both sides of fabric at the same time! The small size makes it perfect to press small embroidered and pieced blocks and easily can be packed when you travel.
It is a firm pressing surface that absorbs heat as you press, so your patchwork is heated on both sides to help you get the flattest seam possible. The wool also lightly grips you fabric for added stability and reduces the risk of distorting your pieces.
It is made of 100% wool with rounded corners and has .5” density, protecting any ironing surface.
Tips and Tricks:
The pressing mat can be used with a dry iron on any surface. If using steam, place the mat on a protected surface since moisture does go through the mat and can harm the surface below. Never place the mat on a rotary cutting mat when pressing. The heat could warp the cutting mat. Safe surfaces include Formica, Corian, stone and metal (an ironing board). Wood and painted surfaces should be avoided.
If mat feels damp after use, hang to air-dry before storing.
Wash the mat occasionally by rinsing it in cold water and hanging the mat until dry – especially if using a spray starch.
