Struggling to drag the ironing board and iron upstairs to my room is way too much of a hassle to keep doing. I discovered minature irons but know nothing about them. Do they actually work? I would be using it mainly to press seams, fuse interfacing, and transfer images via iron-on paper or sulky pen. I found 3, so I'll post their pictures/names/prices. Any information you can give me on them and/or other mini irons would be fabulous.

1. Mini Travel Iron - $6.99

2. Mini Crafting Iron - $9.99

3. Heidi Swapp Pink Mini Iron - $12.99

I like the Heidi Swapp one the best, for no reason other than it's pink and adorable. Haha. Oh, and I already know about the Clover mini iron. It's too small. It would take me forever and a day to press a long seam with that thing.

Thanks!

i have the Heidi Swapp iron and it's really good, but i'm pretty sure it's smaller than the Clover.

it's really small, but it gets nice and hot.   Smiley

are we talking about the same clover mini iron? this one:


i saw it in the rag shop and the part that gets hot is only like 1" or 2", unless i'm out of my mind and not remembering properly. it doesn't seem possible to me that an iron in the style of the heidi swapp one could be that tiny. if it is, and you still say it works so well, maybe i'll try that one out. i don't like the clover one mostly because of how you have to hold it and because, apparently, the handle and stand get very hot. i can't find any detailed information on it anywhere, so i'm going to hope that you'd be willing to answer a couple of questions for me. how big is it (about)? how long does it take to heat up? is it a pre-set temperature, or are there different temp. settings? thank youuu =)

haha - definitely not that one!

Clover has a different iron that i'm thinking of.

the HS pink iron is obviously WAY bigger than that!  LOL

it takes a few mins to heat up and it's pre-set - no way to change the temp.

i'm not sure of the measurements - it's probably 6" long?

haha, okay. i was going to say that holding it must be a challenge.

that's a perfect size. i'm going to keep searching for more technical information on it. if i can't find anything, i'll just make sure i buy it from a store that accepts returns. =P

thank you so much for the info!
