This case isn’t just pretty…   It’s insulated with Insul-Bright and perfect for packing a hot iron!

I teamed up with The Warm Company to bring you a tutorial and Give-Away!

Here are the supplies you need to make this case:

Body ~ exterior fabric  12” x 18”
Body ~ lining fabric  12” x 18”
Insul-Bright for body ~  12” x 18”
Pocket fabric ~ 12″ x 11 1/2”
Pocket lining fabric ~ 12″ x 11 1/2”
Insul-Bright for pocket ~ 12″ x 11 1/2”
Binding ~  aprox 2 yards
Ribbon ~  40”
Velcro Dots ~  2 sets

You can find the complete tutorial below but here are a couple tips on quilting the case and binding the pocket…

QUILTING

I started with Insul-Bright so the case would be insulated.  If you’re not familiar with this product you can use it to insulate anything ~ hot or cold! I use it in my Lunch Bag Tutorial AND my Potholder / Towel tutorial)

I layered the bag parts (Insul-Bright / fabric) following the tutorial and marked them for quilting using this hera marker I found on amazon.  I used my ruler and marker to make marks at 1″ intervals to keep my stitching lines straight..

After all my lines were marked, I just stitched right on them!

BINDING

After my quilting was done I got my binding strip aligned on the top edge.  I lined up the raw edge of the binding with the raw edge of the pocket and stitched the binding on with 1/4″ seam.

Then I flipped the fold edge to the back of the pocket, top stitched along the binding catching the back (fold) of the binding on the lining side!  Easy!
