0 out of 5

Protect your counter tops from hot plates or pans with this 10×10 cotton hot pad kit .  This project is a sewing project that can be sewn by hand or with sewing machine.  No tactile borders are needed on this project due to the faux binding serving as a tactile guide. Pick from the optional fabric patterns listed below and indicate your preference in the order notes.

The kit comes pre-cut and pre-assembled ready for folding the faux binding and stitching together!  Included with the kit is one ten inch cotton facing square in your selected fabric pattern, one ten inch Thinsulate batting square, and one  13 inch square backing fabric, safety pins, and plastic clips.  The ten inch cotton facing square is safety pinned right side up on top of the Thinsulate batting, and both are fastened in the center of the wrong side of the 13 inch backing fabric.  This leaves a one and one half inch backing fabric border around the ten inch squares which will be used to create the faux binding.

This is a great project as a fundamental step to learning quilt as you go techniques in preparation for other quilt as you go projects like patchwork table runners and patchwork blankets!

See Sewing Hot Pad Project Assembly Simple Text Instructions Below:

*Pre-requisites: Ability to thread a needle and tie off thread, and perform simple running stitch for hand sewing; or ability to thread a sewing machine, use seam allowance guides for straight sewing, and perform simple running stitch on sewing machine.

Do not remove safety pins from project until instructed to do so.

  1. Thread needle with cotton thread (either hand sewing needle or sewing machine needle).
  2. Your project should be right side up, which you can tell by feeling for the safety pins on the ten inch cotton square.  The squares are safety pinned on the right side.  On each side of the ten inch cotton square and batting, the backing will stick out one and one half inches. Fold one side of the one and one half inch backing fabric in half toward the ten inch square so that the raw edge of the backing fabric meets up flush against the side of the ten inch cotton square and batting – smooth down to crease.  Then fold over in half again so that the folded backing fabric comes over top of the edge of the ten inch cotton and batting squares – forming about a 3/4 inch folded strip.  Place two plastic clips (included with your kit), each about 3/4 in from each side to hold the folded strip in place.
  3. Turn your project to work on the opposite side.  Repeat step 2 to create another 3/4 inch folded strip on top of the opposite side of the ten inch cotton square and batting.
  4. Turn your project 1/4 around to work on one of the remaining two sides.
  5. Fold the one and one half inch backing side in half toward the ten inch square so that the raw edge of the backing fabric meets flush up against the side of the ten inch cotton square and batting – smooth down to crease.  If you want mitered corners then proceed to step 8, or if you want square corners proceed to step 6.
  6. OPTION FOR SQUARE CORNERS: Repeat folding over the backing fabric strip in half again so that the folded backing fabric comes over top of the edge of the ten inch cotton and batting squares – forming about a 3/4 inch folded strip.  Place two plastic clips (included with your kit) at each corner, and another plastic clip in the middle to hold the folded border in place.
  7. Turn your project to work on the opposite side and repeat steps 5-6 to create square corners on opposite side.  When completed proceed to step 10.
  8. OPTION FOR MITERED CORNERS: FOLD SMALL TRIANGLE WITH CORNER OF THE FOLDED 3/4 INCH STRIP by folding one corner of the 3/4 inch strip inward so that the point of the corner meets the point of the  inner ten inch square corner, then finger press and hold in place with fingers.  You could set something heavy on the corner triangle like a coffee cup to hold while working on opposite corner.  Repeat this on opposite end of folded 3/4 inch strip to create another small triangle on the opposite side. Then fold the entire strip in half again with triangles folded under, so that the folded backing fabric comes over top of the edge of the ten inch cotton and batting squares.  This will result in about a 3/4 inch folded border with a diagonal corner fold on opposite sides.  Press with fingers to firmly crease and use three plastic clips to clip the folded border in place on two corners and in the middle.
  9. Turn your project to work on opposite side and repeat steps 5 and 8 to create mitered corners on opposite side.
  10. Complete stitching 4 sides of project. With your borders securely fastened to the inner ten inch squares with plastic clips, you can now remove the three safety pins that are along the diagonal center of your ten inch square and batting.  Use a small running stitch (preferably with a colored thread to match backing fabric) to stitch the edge of the folded borders to the ten inch squares and backing.  The folded borders will serve as your tactile stitching guide.  Carefully perform small running stitches along the inside edge of the folded border around all four sides, removing plastic clips as you come to them.  If you created square corners then you can skip step 11.
  11. Complete stitching 4 diagonal corners of project. Make a couple of stitches along center of each diagonal fold (preferably with a colored thread to match backing fabric) to tack the corners down to the ten inch squares and backing, tie off with a knot in back and hide the tail on inside layers of fabric.  The diagonal fold in fabric will serve as your tactile stitching guide.  The folded diagonal corners will be thick, so you may need a thimble to get your needle through the layers of fabric.  You can remove plastic clips as you get to them.
  12. This completes your sewing hot pad project!  Admire, use, or give away your beautiful creation as a gift! 😄
