Mighty Mini Giveaway: The Small Board You Didn’t Know You Needed!

Lazies, Get ready to fall in love! When it comes to pressing small projects or small details, the ironing board doesn’t get the job done. Meet my secret weapon for perfectly pressed purses and more: the 2×4 Mighty Mini Board from my Press Perfect line with Clover. Finally, we can reach those corners, nooks and crannies for a perfectly pressed finish.


The Mighty Mini is a small board that’s all function!
– Squared nose for full function
– Long free-arm
– Sturdy base, metal frame, heavy duty cover/pad
– Low center of gravity for stability and ease of use
– Sized for your hand so you can hold/control the board
– A little longer than two average irons: 21″ long x 3 1/2″ wide x 4″ tall
– Portable, legs tuck neatly beneath for compact storage
– Clover #7800, $46.95 list price
– Order through your local quilt shop, online or click here to order any of the Press Perfect items

The Nose Knows
The squared nose of the Mighty Mini free-arm is revolutionary and it addresses one of my major grievances with all sizes of ironing boards – the elongated rounded nose.

The rounded nose lacks support for our projects right where we need it. It creates pull and drag, allowing our project to droop or sag during pressing. It’s the same on the regular board, table topper and the sleeve board.

Gosh It’s Shaped Like A Piece of Wood
Yes, exactly. It reminds me of a 2×4 plank of wood. That’s where it got its name.

Square Gets The Job Done
The squared nose of the Mighty Mini is ideal for pressing small projects like my bag designs. Look how the board fits inside my Claire Handbag design. Imagine how useful this will be for all kinds of projects and details.

Sleeve Board?
If you are thinking this is just another sleeve board, I understand. I’ve owned a good number of sleeve boards over the years and I have been disappointed by all of them. Rounded nose, bad shape, unstable, poor quality, bad leg placement, blah, blah, blah. It’s enough to make a Lazy Girl develop hard feelings for the whole category.

Well, the Mighty Mini is a smart, functional small board. Don’t call it a sleeve board, you’ll hurt its feelings. You can certainly use it to press sleeves and collars, but it’s so much more than that. It’s the new basic you didn’t know you needed. Use it in conjunction with your regular board or alone. It literally fills the gaps your big board leaves.


Quilt Market
I’ll be in Clover’s booth #1802 at Quilt Market in Houston this week. Come by to see me and play with the new goodies. I also hope to see you at my Schoolhouse and Take & Teach in Houston.

    This is an awesome tool. I was sewing with a bunch of ladies
    on the weekend and one of the gals offered me this to use for pressing my fabric – did not have to haul out the ironing board and iron. Very handy.

  2. Judy Reyes — December 3, 2013 @ 7:57 am

    The ironing mini board would be great to have.

  3. Susan — December 4, 2013 @ 3:16 am

    The new board is really slick. No more turning the board around to use the square end. I agree the ironing board was due for a change. This would be great to keep next to my sewing machine.

  4. Linda Fordyce — December 4, 2013 @ 9:53 am

    Wow! Looks like a sturdy little board!

  5. Judy Celik — December 4, 2013 @ 10:04 am

    Such simple changes to the small ironing boards, and I can believe the advantages are great. Thanks for the info.

  6. Fyrne — December 4, 2013 @ 10:47 am

    Looks fun and useful. It should fill a need.

  7. vshaynes — December 4, 2013 @ 4:27 pm

    Nice to see a really excellent new design!

  8. Donna Schragal — December 7, 2013 @ 4:10 pm

    Sounds FANTASTIC! It will be a treat to be able to bring it into my kitchen or to my sewing area. I’m getting older (although i tell my kids that I feel 35 when sitting down.) and not have to lug the big board out for smaller projects or quilt blocks.

  9. Judy Witzel — December 10, 2013 @ 2:47 pm

    Wish I had this tool last week. I was trying to iron a small place and
    didn’t have the right tool to make it look good. Would love to have the mighty mini.

  10. Arlene — December 10, 2013 @ 3:52 pm

    You are right. This is something I didn’t know I needed. I can think of many uses for it. Great for pressing pieced seams. I do need it.

  11. Jeanne — December 10, 2013 @ 5:57 pm

    OMGosh that is fantastic. I can think of at least 10 uses right now. And add the mini iron and you can do just about anything. thanks for a chance to win.


  12. Eileen Mueller — December 11, 2013 @ 10:34 am

    Definitely could use this everyday!

  13. Cathy Odom — December 11, 2013 @ 9:07 pm

    Perfect for every corner whether a quilt or heirloom sewing! Gotta have it!

  14. Carol — December 21, 2013 @ 9:27 am

    Looks wonderful – hope I win! : )

  15. Alice A — January 6, 2014 @ 5:08 pm

    This mini ironing board looks like a very sturdy product and the right size for many Lazy projects! I’d love to have one of these!

  16. kim charlick — January 6, 2014 @ 5:27 pm

    This would be fabulous to own!!! What an awesome mini board!!

  17. Lillian Lester — February 17, 2014 @ 9:40 am

    I use a big board in my sewing room and have even made a “small” big board over rolling cabinets in my laundry room. Yes, square really is better. How wonderful that someone has finally designed one for a sleeve board.

  18. Maryann Cavanaugh — February 17, 2014 @ 9:45 am

    You are correct. The Mighty Mini Board is something I would’t have thought that I needed, but after seeing how it can be utilized, I have a feeling it is one of those things you wish you knew about previously.Would love to win one!

  19. Linda Harcrow — February 17, 2014 @ 9:47 am

    I would love this mini board to use with making bags, children’s and doll clothing, crafts projects., etc.

  20. Veronica Walsh — February 17, 2014 @ 10:25 am

    Oooh! This so cute and useful. I would love one

  21. Coleen swezy — February 17, 2014 @ 10:32 am

    I am in love. What a great way to press all the handles for my lazy girl purse patterns.

  22. Laurie — February 17, 2014 @ 12:23 pm

    What a great idea!!!! Has lots of functions, like pressing laces, cuffs, small projects! Wow.

  23. Carolle Whittall — February 17, 2014 @ 1:00 pm

    EXACTLY what I need! Thanks!

  24. Jan Harritt — February 17, 2014 @ 6:06 pm

    I’ve purchased 3 small pressing boards in the past, and they all disappointed me! So, YES I am definitely ready for a new kind of small ironing board! Good for you for helping come up with one! Ps I love your patterns too.

  25. Maryann Cavanaugh — February 25, 2014 @ 5:29 pm

    New board looks very user friendly; a great addition to my sewing supplies.

  26. Bonnie Johnson — February 25, 2014 @ 5:40 pm

    Will come in handy for the Margo Bag

  27. Sue Goecker — February 25, 2014 @ 6:12 pm

    I could sure use that for projects with tight places – would be useful for sleeves and pant legs too….

  28. Deborah Adams — February 25, 2014 @ 7:58 pm

    I love this!

  29. Angie — February 25, 2014 @ 10:13 pm

    That is a neat little board! …and it would pack up nicely to take to classes too!!

  30. Pat Chandler — February 26, 2014 @ 10:28 am

    I could use this in my tote bag making.

  31. Judy Walker — February 26, 2014 @ 5:27 pm

    It is just the right size to press those seams while sewing. It doesn’t take up much room either. Great idea!

  32. Shannon — March 6, 2014 @ 2:30 pm

    I bet I could find a use for that every day!

  33. Sandee Scofield — March 6, 2014 @ 3:48 pm

    I think it would be wonderful for pressing all the purses I make. Even for pressing sleeves and pant legs.

  34. Melanie Warman — March 6, 2014 @ 6:19 pm

    I wish I’d had this when I made my first Miranda Bag!

  35. Liz — March 7, 2014 @ 6:32 pm

    Would have been so helpful so many times to press bags and other small items. Thanks for the chance to win! Your patterns and teniques are faboulous.

  36. Sue L — March 8, 2014 @ 7:54 am

    Not sure is contest is still open as it says to post by Oct. 2013, but I would love to have this small compact ironing board to use when pressing purses, ipad covers, and all smaller items so they look more professional.

  37. Bonnie Wilbar — March 15, 2014 @ 2:42 pm

    What a fantastic idea! It will make pressing corners so much easier, Hope to get one soon.

  38. Liz McDon — April 7, 2014 @ 7:02 pm

    I have a sleeve board I use a lot but this mini board looks to be more efficient. I’d love to have one. Thanks for introducing this to us.

  39. Brenda — October 2, 2015 @ 1:35 pm

    I think it would be great for small corners. I hope I can win this great giveaway. Thanks for offering.

  40. Gina S. — October 31, 2015 @ 8:46 am

    Brilliant! I make bags, totes and more recently started to dabble in making baby clothes. The Mighty Mini would make the process much easier.
