IKEA hack - "Turntable Ironing Board"

I saw this Clover „Turntable“ ironing board in many of the japanese craft magazines and thougth it would be quite handy. As Clover does not sell it in Germany and I remembered the “lazy susan tray” at IKEA I made one myself.


IKEA Hack - Turntable Ironing Board


Material needed: SNUDDA (lazy suzan tray 39 cm) from IKEA 5,99 €.




Cotton fabric, and heat resistant batting (mine is from an ironing board cover). The batting needs to be cut exactly the size of SNUDDA, the fabric appox. 10 cm bigger than SNUDDA.


Make a giant yoyo with a rather strong thread, put the batting on top of SNUDDA and cover both with the yoyo. Pull the thread tight and voila…

I found your blog through RedWorkStitchers Yahoo group. I love your Redwork. It's all gorgeous.

What a great idea for making your own rotating ironing board. I may have to make one for myself.

I've bookmarked your site so I'll be watching for your updates.

What a great idea! I've always wanted a reason to buy an IKEA lazy susan and now I think I have a good excuse to pick one up!

Auf derselben Grundlage habe ich mir eine drehbare Schneidematte gebastelt...
Ikea ist immer für ein Schnäppchen gut, oder?

You may have emailed me several years ago about a picture I posted on the Internet. It was a little Dutch Cleanser Girl in Redwork. I had no clue where I got the pattern as I was in several swaps and very new to the Internet. I still have it sitting in my draw, with my other stash of stitcheries. I just stitch to stitch (love embroider). Mostly in the car so I don't drive DH crazy with my back seat driving (lol). Just want to say thanks, and love this tutorial. I just gave away my lazy susan this past summer. I will have to look for another one at garage sales this coming spring!
