I made this hot pad spice mat this afternoon. It was a kit that I had got from a shop hop I went to on thursday. The applique stitching I did isn't very good it's only the second time I've done it being a newbie to sewing and quilting. I think it turned out ok. I would probably make more but change some of the pattern to make it easier to make. Just thought I'd share.:) Almost forgot there is a little pouch inside that holds spices so when you put your kettle or other hot item on top it lets off a nice smell.
