i talked about the book natural patchwork in the part 1 post. the hot pads made by author suzuko koseki were one of the main reasons i bought the book. i love them:
my hot pads were loosely inspired by hers, but i'd like to make another set that are as identical to these as possible!
here are mine:
these two have pockets on the back to slip your hand into when taking a pan out of the oven.
these were part of a wedding present given to a friend of mine.
we are in our new apartment now. somehow we only got here with one hot pad. (????) the other night we had some friends over, and i was making homemade fries in the oven at a high temp. the smoke alarm kept going off (even though there was no smoke in the house) and it was such a loud noise. to top off all the commotion, i couldn't find our one and only hot pad. it was pretty funny.
that hot pad is still AWOL. so i have a set of homemade hot pads at the top of my to-make list.
and in the mean time, if anyone sees a lone green hot pad, tell it to come back home :)
