    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.

    Very cute! what are you using for the spices in it? cinnamon? cloves?

    they would make great gifts..maybe a ginger breadman or a Christmas tree in the center!

    I think they are cloves. I was thinking maybe a autumn themed one too with a pumpkin or leaves in the middle. Now if only I could learn to do the applique part better I'd be set lol :oops:

    It turned out swell.
    Remember that the more you practice, the better you will become, but your first projects will alway's mean something to you and are a reference of how far you have come. Don't be so hard on yourself.

    Yes. You are doing quite nicely with your stitching, and I'm sure you'll continue to improve.
