Now you know how it is to have a bazillion little pieces you are sewing together…and sometimes it is nice not to have to get off your sewing chair to go to the “big” iron, because you are only sewing and pressing these little seams…or you are pressing your seams open…this little iron sits right by my machine…I have a table top ironing board or I have a covered TV tray stand as a mini ironing board, next to my machine…So conveinence is a big thing here, but also tiny pieces-tiny iron makes sense..now this little Roweneta has the all the nice features as the “big” Rowenta…which is all those steam holes and the nice point for getting those seams open…the downfall-no automatic shut off…But you only have to leave in on for days once to remember you almost could have burned your house down…I know not funny with all those quilts in it..and the steam holder is little…I have to fill it a couple of times…but it is a tiny iron and I use it ALOT!
As long as I am talking about irons here…I also use a “normal “Rowenta iron for my wool appliqué… and in my regular ironing of fat quarters or border and so on…Do you see all those tiny steam holes in my travel iron? These are the same steam holes you want in your iron for wool appliqué! Lots of steam holes…not just 12 big ones. This is crucial because wool and steam are best friends! If you also leave your iron in one place too long on your black wool you wont have 12 little circular iron marks now in your black wool!!! In my patterns you might get tired of reading…”lots of tiny little presses using a steam iron”…I must type this a million times….So for wool applique , small piecining and any ironing the Rowenta Irons I cannot live without!
