I created this tutorial for Sew Mama Sew. It involves three of my favorite things: patchwork, embroidery and Zakka style. When we moved last summer, we chose to use the dining room table that doesn't have a pad to use under tablecloths. I'd been using funny-looking squirrel and nut hot pads on the table and wanted to make something more suitable and fun (not that squirrels aren't amusing!). With a back pocket, these hot pads double as oven mitts. They were inspired by Colton, who says, "Hot Hot Hot" at dinner when the food hasn't cooled down yet. For the full photo tutorial and materials list please visit the Sew Mama Sew post here.
I had a great time designing and making these. It was interesting making two identical pieces; that rarely happens in my studio. Many thanks to Sew Mama Sew for having me!
