Pattern Description:

i love using hot pads, both for removing items from the oven or placing under hot dishes on the table. I also love finding ways to use scraps and this is a good scrap fabric pattern. The backs and fronts of each hot pad can be different colours and prints. It's fun to make them for every season: denim for every day; holiday prints for Christmas, Easter, Birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and so on. They become addictive - and they make perfect small gifts, too. Note: if the heat resistant fabric you use is only heat resistant on one side, double it, placing wrong sides together so that both sides of your hot pad are heat resistant. Have fun with these!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Finished Size: 7 x 7 inches


  • For One Hot Pad: two 7-1/2 inch squares of fabric; one 1-1/2 x 7-1/2 inch strip for hanging loop (optional); 7-1/2 inch square of Insul-Bright or your favourite heat-resistant material; 7-1/2 inch square of cotton batting (optional, but recommended); coordinating thread colours.

You Will Also Need:

  • 1/4-inch wide Wash Away Wonder Tape (optional) or 1/4-inch wide Steam-A-Seam2 (optional
