I made these Hot pads for my sister in law Carrie. I followed THIS tutorial. Like most tutorials I follow, I tweaked this one a little bit. I used one layer of fabric, one layer of warm and natural, one layer of Insulbright then another layer of warm and natural and then my fabric on the back. I made my own binding. Instead of making the loop at the end. I made the loop separate and sewed it onto the edge of the hot pad before I put the binding on. It didn't take me very long.
When I was making the oven mitt I used my oven mitt from my kitchen as a pattern. I traced around it and then added 1/2 inch around my tracing. Let me know if you have any questions.
