Holiday Hot Pad Tutorial


Check out my simple instructions for making this hot pad for the holidays over at Skip to my Lou’s Handmade Holiday series.

I used my new Garden collection for Kokka, which will be available in the next couple of months. (Those are my Folk Modern tulips in the background, which you can find here and here). The pattern is adapted from my Ticking Stripe Hot Pad pattern in 1, 2, 3 Sew.

Since I’ll be selling some things at the Indie Craft Experience’s Holiday Shopping Spectacular this weekend, I made a few extra.

  • Hi, Love the potholders. A question.. In the cutting there are 2 pieces of 8.5 x8.5 batting cut… in step 4 “put it together” Order starts with 8.5 batting.. is that to mean both pieces of 8.5 batting layers on top of each other as the first step? Would you still need 2 layers if using insul-Brite instead?

    Thank you so very much and Happy Thanksgiving!


  • Hi Joyce,

    I used a cotton/linen blend fabric so it’s thick enough with just one layer, but if you are using a quilting cotton, two layers might be better. But yes, since you are using insul-bright, I think you’re good with just one layer!

    Thanks! –Ellen
