Folded Fabric Trivet (Hot Pad)

Project Description

What are you most proud of? After several tries I got this one to work. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is very similar to the ornaments that I made, which I found on There is probably a video for this, or you could follow the instructions for the ornament but do it on the flat rather than a ball.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton and Insul Brite

Very nice. There is a pattern for this - I thought it was called the folded Star but am not sure - always wanted to try it but haven't gotten around to it yet - maybe just maybe you've insipired me to give this one a try. Colors are pretty!
Ladymax answered:
Thanks for letting me know there is a pattern. I hope you give it a try, it really is not difficult and does not take much time.
