Supplies for Quilted Hot Pads

Instructions for Quilted Hot Pads

  1. Begin by cutting your fabric to 10×14″. Measure and mark the fabric with a ruler, and then cut it to the exact dimensions you need.
  2. Next, cut your insul bright batting and quilt batting to 9 by 13″. It’s important to have your batting and insul bright batting slightly smaller to make it easier to turn, and it lays better when in use.
  3. On one piece of fabric, use your ruler to mark a 1/2-inch seam allowance all the way around the raw edges. This will help you sew the pieces together evenly.
  4. Using a dot of glue or bias tape, attach your insulbright and quilt batting to the marked fabric piece. Make sure they are centered and secure.
  5. With the right sides of your fabric facing each other, sew around the edges, leaving a 3/4-1″ opening. This opening will allow you to turn the project right side out.
  6. Carefully turn your project right side out, and use an iron to close up the seams where the opening was left.
  7. Attach your walking foot to your sewing machine, and sew all the way around the outside edge of the top of the hot pad, using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
  8. Using a fabric marker, draw a line down the center of your hot pad. Then, draw lines 2 inches on either side of the center line, until you reach the end of the hot pad.
  9. Top stitch each line, making sure to back stitch at the beginning and end of each line. You can also choose to sew diagonal lines if you prefer that look.
  10. Once you’ve finished sewing the lines, iron your hot pad to remove any remaining fabric marker lines. Your finished product should be a beautiful, quilted hot pads that’s both functional and stylish.
