I know, you’re thinking I’ve actually lost my mind with this Cool Tool, but trust me, this sleeve board really is a useful tool!
And why is it useful? Well, because it’s got such a small area, you can pop bags and pouches over the end and press them properly. If you’ve ever tried to press one on a full sized ironing board you’ll know that it’s hard (if not impossible) to fit smaller bags over the end to press one side at a time, so your only options are to try and hold a steam iron up against it, or to iron the thing flat on top of the board, which is particularly tricky if you’re making something that’s round!
They seem to be going for the princely sum of between £6 and £10 online, so it’s a nice, cheap tool, and it will fold flat for storage and tuck away nicely.
I don’t know how I’d get along without my sleeve board. The only thing I’m not crazy about it is the cover which is getting replaced as soon as I get fabric to cover both it and it’s big brother. They’re going to be getting twin outfits.
And I just happen to have got one for Christmas!
