I came across this product, the Touch Up Topper online. It is a heat resistant mat that lays over your dryer to use as an ironing surface. It has magnets in the corners to help hold it in place. I thought that sounded like a good idea, and found a few other versions of ironing mats in my searches.
- Large mat with grid for measuring and cutting fabric as well! (With scissors, not rolling cutters, as far as I can tell)
- Silicone pad that claims to iron both sides at once.
You can get the backer fabric at Joann
