Just in case you missed my post over at
here it is.
You will first want to choose your fabrics and embellishments.
Since these are going to be used as Hot Pads, I chose a batting that would be durable and withstand the heat. ( I purchased mine at Joann’s )
Using one of my pots as a template, I traced and cut out my pattern.
I pinned and basted my trim onto one of my pattern pieces, with the batting attached as well. This will just help insure there is no moving when you sew the top piece on. Be sure to leave a small opening for turning right sides out.
I repeated the same process 3 other times, each with a different sized pot and different fabric.
Press them with a hot iron.
At this point you can Top Stitch or Leave them as is.
I’m kind of liking them, as is.
These little hot pads offer endless amounts of creativity. You can personalize them for special occasions, Birthdays, Weddings, Housewarming’s and even for the Holiday’s.
So don’t just sit there!!
Get to making some Hot Pads and get your GIFT GIVING on!!
I would also love for you to stop by and say Hello either at my,
