    So cute! I am going to whip up a few of these sometime this week- I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks! (Love ya!)

  3. I’ve heard there is a special batting or stabilizer that is heat resistent that is wonderful for putting in hot pads. Does anyone know what it is and where to get it?~Shelly~

    The special batting is called InsulBright made by the Warm Company and ask for it at your local quilt shop.

    Super cute! I am going to have to make some of those, the hot pads I use are not that cute.

  8. Denise says:

    In the instructions it says to cut one of each from the fat quarters and as I’m reading when I get to the end it says it yields 2 hot pads. How do you come up with 2?thanks. Very sweet fabric you chose!

  9. Aunt Donna says:

    Just an FYI … I found Insulbrite at my local WalMart. It’s located with the batting on a roll stuff. I’d think maybe a bit less expensive than at a quilt shop. 🙂
