We're having a family dinner on Christmas Eve with DD#1. In addition to food, I thought I'd make a little gift for each family there. It adds up to 5.
I saw a cute pattern for a hot pad here.
Here's my first attempt:
It's really stiff, 5 layers. Not bad, but a little bit wiggly round the edge.
Third one. Now I'm getting confident. And while trimming the top four layers, ready to bring the binding over from the backing, I actually thought: "Wouldn't it suck if I cut into the backing?"
And, hey presto!
These hot pads are a 60 Minute Gift !!! To wrap, maybe. For me to sew, not so much!
To all my blogging friends, have a very Happy Christmas! We'll get together again after the holiday.
