Sign up for August 2013 “Not your momma’s hot pad” Swap
You will make one hot pad to be swapped with one partner. The hot pad should have enough batting to protect a table from a hot item sitting on it. If you choose, your hot pad may hang. The shape of your hot pad may vary, however the minimum overall size should be 7” x 9”. Have fun creating something unusual. Think outside the box. The theme should be universal and not a holiday theme. Think of all things “Hot” .
You will not be able to sign up if you have any outstanding swaps unfulfilled.
To join the fun, just copy and paste the following in a pm to me no later than August 21st.
