DIY: Felted wool hot pads
One 13-by-15-inch piece at $12.50 is enough to make two 7-by-12-inch hot pads. You'll need some cotton duck for backing and cotton batting for stuffing as well as cotton thread for quilting.
Think, think: The holidays aren't that far off, and these would make perfect gifts for cooks.
You don't have to make them in oatmeal, of course. The felted wool comes in 45 gorgeous hand-dyed colors.
No running around looking for the materials. You can order everything from Purl Soho online.
