Here Mary is showing us the fabric combinations that we can choose.
Tutorial for Chenille Hot Pad
Use 2 contrasting colors of flannel fabric.
Cut 2 large squares 9 1/2" of the focus fabric.
Cut 1 smaller square 9" of the focus fabric.
Cut 2 smaller squares 9" of the contrasting fabric.
Cut 1 square 8 1/2" of batting.
Cut 1 strip 3" x width of fabric
Make a quilt sandwich of the 9 1/2" focus fabric squares and the square of batting.
Lay the 2 contrasting 9" squares on top of the quilt sandwich. Lay them both right sides up. Then place the remaining focus fabric 9" square on top of them. Again laying the square right side up. Pin all 6 of these layers together.
Sew until you have 6 channels on each diagonal as shown below.You will be cutting through the top 3 layers only! Stop about 1/4" from the stitching lines that crisscross in the center of the hot pad.
All that is left to do is to trim the sides and square up the pad. Attach the binding using a 1/2" seam allowance. The binding can be sewn down on the back side by hand or by machine.
Here we are finishing our chenille pads and lending a helping hand. It's so much fun sewing with the ladies at Coastal Haven. They are all so helpful and willing.
Even left-handers can do this project ;-)
