Stress Reducer

It's been a pretty stressful week, with one thing and another, so I wanted to make something for me; something I could start and finish fairly quickly. I'd seen this - 

on Pinterest and loved it, thinking it was a cute little purse. But when I started searching for the pattern, I found out it is so. much. more.

My version - purple, of course.
And when you unbutton it . . . 
first one side, then the other . . .
and lay it out flat . . .
you end up with a hot-iron tote* and portable ironing pad to take to quilting classes.
And the best parts? It's purple and it's finished.

*It's called 'Caddy Pad Jr' and I got mine on eBay from the designer. Pad comes in three sizes to accommodate most irons.
