I'm Addicted to My Sewing Machine

Seriously... I'm hooked on this thing.  I'm sewing scraps of fabric that have no purpose.  You will have to perform some sort of intervention soon.  Send me to the Singer Clinic for sewing machine dependency.  It's for my own good.

I decided to be productive this week and sew something I could actually use.  I know, so genius, right?  I needed some hotpads... I keep using dish towels to put under hot casserole dishes and then, after dinner, I cannot recall where I put my dishtowel.  Senility, thy name is Priscilla.

I had plenty of fabric and insul-batting scraps lying around, so I went to work.

I used a casserole pan to decide what size hotpads I should make... then I cut the fabric to size and started pinning the batting to one piece of the fabric.

So simple, I shouldn't even bother with a post.  But, I bother.  Because I love.

I pinned the top fabric to the batting and bottom fabric...

And then I sewed.  And I did it with a wild look in my eyes... hair flying everywhere... maniacal laugh escaping my mouth.  It was just like Frankenstein, but less gross.

BOOM.  Hot pad.  It took about ten minutes from start to finish... my kind of project.

  1. You crack me up - I can just imagine you sitting at the machine with the "hair flying" and "manical laugh" - sounds like me when I'm on a tear! Keep sewing - it's "good for what ails you"! LOL!
    Hugs -

  2. Hoe genius is this!! I don't have any felt but I so want to make these. We live in a rental and we have horrible counters and I have already burned a spot. I need to make this!! I am so pinning this!!!

  3. A useful project, sometimes you just have to go there. This sewing project is the perfect kind for me, quick, straight lines, simple. Perfect. The downside? The sewing machine is buried in the closet because I haven't found a designated home for it. I like the color you chose too!

  4. I wish I was addicted to my sewing machine. Right now its a love hate relationship and it's more hate than love.

    These are super cute!

  5. What a great idea! I love the fabric. Megan

  6. I LOVE my sewing machine too!! When I got it I had no idea how much I would use it! Love that fabric!


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
