Instant gratification

When I moved, I left all the potholders and hot pads behind. I’ve been using dish towels to get things out of the oven and folding them to place casseroles on.  I decided last night to make myself some hot pads.  I used some “ugly” fabric that I had on hand to test these out.  3 layers of 100% cotton batting and some binding and VIOLA!  I’ve got myself a couple of hot pads.  I won’t use them as potholders because I don’t think they will be insulated well, but they will do for placing hot dishes on.  I love small, quick projects. I get a nice sense of accomplishment in very little time.

Quick, easy, and functional
