Hot pad factory

With the Farmyard table runner complete, I'm on to making hot pads. I bought 3 different fabrics at 1/4 yards each, with the $20 that my mom gave me. I love how she slips me twenty bucks. I padded them with a double layer of batting and backed them with red broadcloth.

My kitchen is north-facing and without sunlight. These pot holders are inspired by my desire to bring some light, bright colors, and energy into my own kitchen. I hope these bright fabrics (turned pot holders) will brighten friends', aunts', and grandmothers' kitchens this winter.
