It’s a Pot Holder, Hot Pad and More!
This cute pot holder is great for summer, providing a colorful accent for your kitchen. It can also be used as a mug rug or snack mat anywhere around the house.
It’s a cute hot pad for your table, too, but turn it upside down when placing something hot on it so the buttons don’t melt. Be sure to include Insul-Bright batting for heat proofing if you plan to use it as a hot pad or pot holder.
The cute bluebird can turn into other birds by changing the colors. Go through your stash for a fabric combo you love.
This is an easy project and one that can be finished up quickly. You may want to make an extra one for a nature-loving friend.
The finished hot pad, from Crafty Staci, is about 8″ square without the beak and tail.
You’ll also need the cutting template found here (print it in “landscape” mode).
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
