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! I am sorry, but we cannot sell to Europe nor any other countries involved with the EU VAT. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Beginner sewing skills SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished Size: 7 x 7 inches

As a child, I watched my Mom sew and my grandmother make crochet chains. Then, in 7th and 8th grade, I took what were then called Home Economics classes, and learned more about sewing and knitting. Afterwards, I continued learning on my own, mostly through books, and later TV programs, and online. In 2001, I became a quilt and web designer, and a quilt teacher. I am a co-founder and past Editor-in-Chief of The Quilt Pattern Magazine , and owner of the Quilts for Sale website, where I provide a venue for quilters to sell their quilted items . I sell my quilt patterns here on Craftsy's pages.
