All My Faves Hotpads

My old hotpads were stained with that greasy feel that only partly abates after washing.  Some of the edges were flame-crisped, too (oops).  Time for some new ones! 

I dug through my piece bag and pulled out all my favorite scraps that said "happy kitchen" to me.



Such a good feeling to grab these bright hotpads out of the drawer.  They are my go-to hotpads for size and thickness.  For filler this time, I used one layer of old towel sandwiched inbetween some knit fabric scraps. For me, this is enough heft for heat protection while still allowing give and bending.

Beautiful! I love new hotpads. Unfortunately, they become old ones all too fast.

Very cute. All the hotpads I've made for myself didn't have enough filling in them, so they were a bit of a fail. My current set have silicone on one side that wipes off easily, so I suspect I'll have them for a while.

You are the hotpad queen, or genius, whichever you prefer. Both, really. Just enlarge that method, Margo, and the resulting quilts would be fabulous. I'm telling you! :D

Very nice and useful! I use both hot pads and oven mitts but I recently burnt one of my oven mitts half to ashes. I like the cheery fabric scraps you chose!

Isn't it wonderful to make something out of scraps that gives you pleasure every time you use it? The hotpads are beautiful!
