Welcome to the 6th week post of the 52 weeks of hot pads / quilted pot holders.


I thought it would be a great challenge for me to do a pot holder a.k.a hot pads every single week of 2019.

I am planning on having it displayed in my kitchen. They make great decor don’t they?

While I am at it, I am going to be sharing with you a simple tutorial on the process.

You can join in the challenge and make the same hot pads I make every week with the same design or any of your own choice.

I am actually making this ahead of time since I’ll be travelling when you are this post goes out.

An because I was short of time, I decided to follow one of the tutorial already available on the web.

Another heart.

Confession: I didn’t follow to the exactly the tutorial. I sort of was inspired and went on making it myself.

It is when I have completed the hot pad that I realised that the tutorial was much simpler and didn’t require the bias binding around the heart. Ugh, that is why there is a tutorial. To make life easier. Thank you tutorial maker.

I was short of time to hand sew the binding tape, and I decided to machine stitched it down – which is not the best, as it makes “my wobbly stitches” very obvious.

Oh well, a slightly different version. But nonetheless, the idea came from this tutorial. So if you want to make one, follow the tutorial and the template from there.

I love the idea that we can simply fold this and make it a pot holder. So cute too.
