In the past, I've made her a quilt, a tote bag, and a few zip bags. I knew it was time to do something different. I have a precious little bundle of Vintage Kitchen fabric that I adore. (This collection is adorable and it felt refreshing to have something in my stash besides the typical AMH, Tula Pink, Lizzy House, etc.) I started with a large hot pad made with VF and lots of scraps. We have one of these (made by a friend in a long ago BMQG swap) and use it pretty much every evening. This measures 16":
With the large one being so busy, I decided to do one-fabric hot pads, measuring 8":
Here's a picture of it all together, along with some fun items from the housewares section at TJ Maxx. Ok, so I guess I still went shopping!
