Travelling Iron Caddy and pressing mat

Before I went on camp I decided to make a ironing caddy, so I could keep my iron safe from damage on route, plus avoid having to take a travel ironing board. 
I didn't measure the placement of the buttons so the straps are looking a little wonky. It was so exciting to find two matching gorgeous buttons for this project, out of my vast collection!
However my iron is a tad too long, so doesn't fit as well as it should.  The pattern was excellent; well written with practical diagrams and photos to make it super easy to follow.  But I just assumed irons were a "one size fits all" type of equipment! 
Still I am super happy with the outcome and my iron is now safe for all future trips!
The pattern came from an USA company, Sisters Common Thread and is called "caddy pad".
I acquired my pattern from Ann at Periwinkle Patchwork if you want to buy one in Australia.
The pattern includes the reflective heat fabric so you get a better result when pressing.  I tried to buy this fabric locally and was unable to source it - as there are free patterns on the web - but this pattern was so well written I would highly recommend buying it!
Please note I am not getting paid for this endorsement - I just love it and wanted to pass that on to my readers.
Happy quilting Sue.
