Make something for your home that is full of love! This lovely heart design makes your hot pad stand out from the rest. It is the perfect resting spot for a hot pot of tea or mug of coffee. These useful aids can be used to protect your table and hands from any hot cooking items.
You can alter the size of your hot pad to fit pots and serving bowls too. The color options are endless, so you can have fun mixing things up!
- Two 5 ½ inch squares of linen
- An extra scrap of linen for the heart
- One 5 ½ square of cotton batting
- A sewing machine
Place the material for your heart on top of one of your linen squares. You can trace the heart design onto your linen for guidance. Then sew along your heart with your sewing machine.
Once you sew the heart, continue to sewing to create a multiple stitched lines. This will create an interesting design. The image above shows exactly what this should look like.
Sew the cotton batting to the second piece of linen.
Stitch the two squares together using a simple top stitch. To do this, sew along to border with the exposed heart design facing upwards.
Now all you have to do it trim off any excess material from around the edges.
How simple was that?! You can see the two hot pads I made with complimentary colors in the photo. I hope you like this fun way to protect your tabletops. It is an easy craft that looks so charming on any table.
