Hot Pad's and More Hotpads

We decided to do hot pads for family members last year for Christmas along with some homemade jam.  We normally don't do loops, because we couldn't figure out how to do them.  After several tutorials, we decided we need to do a bias type binding.  After ironing them manually on a couple, I decide that was a joke and we invested in a bias tape maker.Simplicity Bias Tape Maker
We also are trying to do some hot pads out of linen for someone and they are not working out at all. We broke or bent 4 needles trying to bind them.  The linen combined with Insulbrite is just too thick.
Here are some of them that we remembered to get pictures of.


There were many more, but like our 12 days hot pads we sorta jumped the gun and sent out all the presents  and forgot to take pictures first.  Oh well hope that you enjoy these.

I'm wondering if you are using a size 100/16 or 110/18 machine needle?

Sweet. My favorite is number 3.

That is exactly how I make mine with binding. I still make my own binding though and after about 2000 pot holders I have made it is kind of routine. Maybe some day I will get the binding maker also. LOL! :)

Potholders are so practical. I love making and using them AND giving them as gifts.
