Hot Pad Sewing Kit
How cute is this hot pad sewing kit. I love how simple it is. I received this one as a gift, but I have since made quite a few of them. Once I made these as an activity with my young women and they loved it.
It is as simple as lining everything up on one side and sewing right down the middle. I bought a whole pack of hot pads at the dollar store. I just had to make sure the loop was in the middle of the hot pad and not on the corner. Then you add a button to one side and you are done.
For the inside I added two snack size ziplock bags to hold thread, scissors, etc. I like to use bobbins to hold different colors of thread, they are the perfect size.
I also added a strip of fabric to hold pins and needles so they don't get lost.
I also found this cute first aid kit made from a hot pad on Heather Carson's blog. She shows you how to add a loop for the button if your hot pad doesn't have one already.
