I love scented hot pads and this is a good pattern for one. The pads always add a nice scent to the house when you use them and you have a place to put that hot teapot. Or else you can make a smaller one for your tea cup. It is a good stash buster as well. Thank you.

A scented hot pad or trivet to rest a small tea pot on is a nice scrap project. The heat from the steeping tea pot does release the aroma of the potpourri in the pad. I would want to make sure any aromatic filler is not too lumpy or the tea pot will be a bit tippy as it rest on the pad.
