When I give gifts, I would like for them to be used often. Bought, handmade, it doesn’t matter. Practical and beautiful gifts are the best.
We girls, Rebecca, Joyce (yes, I have a friend who is named Joyce, just like me), and I have been baking a lot. I just have very little proof of it… Haha. I don’t know where the pictures have gone.
I wasn’t really sure what to get Rebecca (honestly, the whole gift came together within a week, I had no clue what I was doing), but when I found a tutorial for making hot pads, I knew I had to make it for her.
As you can see, the fabrics are the same one as the bag. This one came first, then I decided to make the matching bag in the previous post. My sewing is still very wonky; it was hard to sew the bias tape with that thickness, but at least it looks somewhat decent?
So far, they seem to work pretty well. If I were to make them again, I’d make a new pattern to cut from, since these ended up pretty small. I also added the other pocket, since the original tutorial only called for making one pocket for the fingers.
