The tiny iron can be found at hobby lobby. (or in a monopoly game) =)

this is a great project - I would use a clear hard plactic for safety. I have been unable to locate a replica of the Vintage Collectables Iron in order to reproduce this project - noticed someone else has asked the same question since march of this yr. If you put a project out I would think you'll make available all resources. To recreate this project you do need that iron trinket otherwise it just looks like a basic glass jar!

where do i find the iron, my best friend just brought a new home (her first) with a laundry room and I thought this would be great for the new room.

I love it! I can't wait to make this for my son for Christmas! :)

Mine would have to hold clothespins and quarters. The clothespins for hand washables. The quarters for the laundromat.
