I've had a few requests for a hot pad tutorial...AND it's been on my mental list of things to do, so here we go! This is an easy afternoon sewing project...in theory, anyway. :) It's a great way to use up some scraps or mini charm packs.
here. The recipes for the sauces can be found in this post.
Supplies needed for one hot pad:
16 2 1/2" squares of quilting cotton
9" square of cotton batting
9" square of Insul-Brite
9 1/2" square of quilting cotton for the back of the hot pad
2 1/2" strip of bias binding, about 36" long
bias binding tutorial if you are unsure of how to make it or how to join the last seam. It's the same method as attaching bias binding to a quilt, just on a smaller scale.)
(These also make great indoor Frisbees....but don't tell your kids or grandkids that! Hahaha!)
If you make any hot pads using this tutorial, I'd love to see them!
