Making gifts for others is one of my favorite things about sewing (one of the reasons I wrote an entire book on the subject of gift giving). February is the month of LOVE and to celebrate, I designed this free tutorial to make the Hearts on Fire Hot Pads. You'll find all the details over on the Olfa website right here. The heart is actually a pocket for your hands and makes this more of an oven mitt.
There is even a little spotlight interview with me where I brag a bit about my cooking abilities.
In these samples, I used the "Kiss the Cook" fabrics from Dear Stella. I LOVE them. My Two Peas are on a livestock judging team in our county and they raise market lambs so it seemed pretty appropriate for our family.
Thanks to Dear Stella for providing the Kiss the Cook fabrics and The Warm Company for the Insulbright interfacing. As always, thank you to Bernina USA - I sew with a B580 and it makes sewing a breeze!
