Hot Pad

I had some jelly roll strips left over from a previous project, so when I saw a woven pot holder, I thought it might be a good way to use some of the strips.

I've made this larger than a pot holder, about 10" square to make a hot pad.  As the jelly roll strips have been doubled over prior to weaving, this is very thick and should have no trouble absorbing the heat.  Although this was a simple project, it took quite a bit of time to do,  so I don't think I'll be making many of these.

I still have some of the jelly roll strips left, so I'll have to get the thinking cap on for another project to get them all used up.

I love the way you find a use for every 'left-over'. That piece would make a great gift.
