All-Purpose Tray

After going to several retreats, I realized I didn't like running back and forth between cutting tables and ironing boards so I asked my husband to make portable versions for me. He modified TV trays by attaching a cutting mat to a board for a sturdy cutting surface and also layered batting and ironing board fabric to make an ironing surface. He added handles and locks so the modified trays are easy to pack up and carry to retreats!
