Here's the padded side for ironing
Here's the other hard side for cutting.
Here's what I gave to my husband to use under the computer he uses when he's in my sewing room with me.
Ever since I added that big comfy chair from our bedroom, he's sits with me at night while we're both on the computer or watching TV. Great to have him in here when I'm sewing.
If you have a cut and press board or something like it, use it for a lap desk while you're not using it for sewing. It's the perfect size for a laptop computer.
