It’s Cooks Week here on the Purl Bee, the time to share great sewing patterns (that you still have time to make!) for all of the chefs and sous chefs in your life. Today we present one of the most crucial kitchen accessories: the hot pad!
These Simple Stitched Hot Pads may be ultra easy to make, but they’re so elegant and cleanly finished that no one will guess how little time they took. They’re made of a gorgeous array of denim blues on one side and a soft wool on the other, a sum that equals understated beauty!
The subtle fabric and pretty handstitching may not seem cut out for hard work, but lined with heat resistant Insulbrite, these Hot Pads are built for the reality of blistering handles and burning pans., And with their long rectangular shape our Simple Stitched Hot Pads work equally well as hot pads, oven mitts, or trivets!
