I decided to whip up these potholders/hot pads. I used 2 ten" squares of heat resistant batting, I used the flip and sew method to sew the strips to the batting. I then used the pillow turn method to attach the backing, turned it right side out, put in a loop, and sewed around the edge, once on the very edge, and about a half inch in.
Voila! A nice thick potholder, or table pad. I think when I feel like doing a quick project, I will whip up a couple of these, and put them away to tuck into christmas or birthday gift bags. If you have any good ideas for using these strips, please send me a pic! I would love to see them.
