These pads are gorgeous I would like to save the pattern please

#BestIdeaEver I wouldn't have thought of this by myself!

I really need some new hot pads because mine is so worn out and I do not like any I have seen. I like this tutorial and it explains well. I am going to attempt to make some because these look nice and thick. I always burn myself with the store bought because they are so thin. Can anyone who made some tell me if they had a problem with them?

I have not made these pot holders yet as I can't find a way to make a copy of the pattern. My sewing machine is in another room and I can't keep running back and forth

thinking I need to get busy, even though it is just June...

The printing instructions are fine, however why not just have a print version for the project instead of copy/paste or printing everything that does not pertain to the project. The way of cutting , selecting pasting etc, uses a lot of ink and paper that is not necessary if the project had a print only option.

I was thinking the same thing.

A helpful note to GW: You can print a web page by going to file and print and then pick your pdf printer. You'll have a nice pdf file and you can print it in hard copy as well. I agree that the tutorial is very nice.

Tutorial is fine if a person wants to be glued to the computer to follow directions. Why not make a printable direction for the crafts. I won't make any;thing that requires me to stay at the computer while I am trying to read directions.

Hi, GW. I would recommend printing out the pattern if you prefer to view a hard copy. You can either highlight the text you wish to print and click "selection" instead of "all" in print range, or you can copy and paste the pattern into a Word document and print that way. Hope this helps! --Editors of AllFreeSewing
