12 Days of Needful Things…Day 6

Day 6- Needful Things- Precision Mats, Iron off Iron Cleaner & Small Wool Pressing Mat

       Precision Mats- these mats are perfect for helping layout fusible web pieces to the exact placement of the pattern…the pattern can be easily seen through the mat. This allows you to place and then pick up the whole fused layout out of the applique piece and transfer it to the background.  Where then it can be pressed with lots of steam.
Here is a video from the manufacturer on how to use them…I made one but the sound did not work…uggghh….so CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE VIDEO.
We have both sizes, but to me, there is only one I would buy and that is the larger one…This way you can do a much larger piece and you can always to any small shape…I sometimes have huge applique blocks.

    I know for a fact that I need one of these, after watching his people use them it appears to be a perfectionist’s game-changer!

      I have the wool pressing mat and love it and I also have the precision mat but haven’t taken the time to figure out how to use it. Will have to get the iron cleaner.

    I love my wool mat and have to keep the iron cleaner on hand always! The precision mat sounds like a really helpful tool

    We LOVE the Precision Mat!! No more fusible web on the iron, it slides right off the mat! Items easily fused like normal. I bought one for myself & a friend this year before I knew you had them.

    I have an appliqué mat. But I really need a bigger one. Now I can get one. Thanks

    I love my wool mat for pressing wool – also works great for pressing embroidered and appliqued blocks. It tidys them up while not squishing them!

    I bought the small wool mat from Primitive Gatherings a couple of years ago and within a few weeks I ordered the large one. Wouldn’t be without them!!

    All great items! Don’t know how I ever pressed seams before the wool mats came along. The applique pressing mat looks awesome. Need to buy one of those.

    Wool mats are the best. Sure need that huge one for my ironing board. I too have not tried the precision mat

    I have the things you have listed today. I agree they are needful things. Someday I’m going to get that super large mat for my ironing board. BTW I received my order today, thanks so much. The note apologizing for the back ordered items was nice—maybe we will be returning to normal operations soon. What a headache it must be for you.

    i also have all of the items you’re featuring today! Looking forward to a larger ironing surface so I can have a larger wool mat … in the meantime I have 4 smaller ones!


    I love these wool mats! I have the large one and a smaller one too. I do a lot of small, precision piecing and these mats are a must for getting a nice flat block

    I watched the video about the pressing mat, and I decided, I can’t live without it. Especially doing all the wool applique I watch you do, and I want to do. Thanks, it is on my list!!

    I have the small and medium pressing mat. I love, love, love them. Once I redo my sewing room, I hope to get the large one.

    Love my wool pressing mats, but I’m not familiar with the precision mats. I wonder if it would come in handy for working on Twilight Garden?

    The precision mat is new to me. Looking forward to using it. Seems like a must for anyone who appliqués.

    I love this mat and agree just go for the large unless you are trying to use on top of a light box before you remove to press (if you do a lot of collage or needle turn appliqué) I have been able to do that, the mat grips the fabric well enough. I also recommend keeping the package it comes in to store it. I keep a wool pad on my big board and next to my machine with my small travel iron. These may seem like “luxuries” but you will be very happy with both.

    I LOVE my wool pressing mat. After I used a friends at a retreat I just HAD to have one. I do need to splurge and get a bigger one, maybe for my birthday.

  46. Beverly Lawler Avatar

    I love my wool pressing mat. I have two different sizes and use them all the time. I may have to invest in a big one! I have an old appliqué pressing sheet but I love the new ones you have. That will be going into my cart!

    I have never seen these precision mats. What an excellent idea and would have been really helpful for my last projects I was struggling with the placement. Definitely a must have.

    Wool pressing mats are awesome! I have a small one that I always use when pressing blocks. I would like to get a much larger one at some later time. The precision mat looks like a very needful item. And of course, iron cleaner is always useful to have plenty of it on hand.

    Ha! Why didn’t I think of that! That precision mat looks like a potential game changer! I do enjoy my will pressing mats!
