Sewing for me...

Tonight I needed to sew something, so I made myself a hot pad.  It has been on my to-sew list for a very long time. I pieced it together with scraps and put a layer of insul-bright in the middle. There should probably be a loop on the corner too but I was lazy and thought I'd figure that out on the next one.

  Doug was questioning the thickness of it, so I probably should consult a tutorial before I make #2.  But I love how it looks with my new oven mits. I know it will make me smile every time I open the kitchen drawer.  Oh and here's the back. It matches my valences.


  1. I've used this tutorial before and like it.

    I can't tell how thick yours is, but don't you want a hot pad to be thick??

    I've also thought on the next ones I make I'd try putting a grommet in corner, so you could hang them on a hook. All you need is a grommet set and a good hammer!!

    Love the colors and fabrics!! :)

  2. Thanks for the tip on the tutorial. I like the idea of the grommet. Maybe I'll add one. Hope your having fun in GA

  3. Love it!!! But then again I love all your projects:)
