Pizza Hot Pad

Pizza is common occurance in the Wenrich household. There have been weeks where we’ve had pizza twice. It’s a favorite for me and for my husband and both my kids like it too. Winning all the way around.

I have recently fallen off the dieting wagon, and while indulging in pizza and fried cauliflower I decided I just HAD TO make a pizza hot pad to keep my food inspired hot pad collection going.

These are fabulously cute and I’ve gotten such good feedback when I shared the finished results on my FB and insta stories.

These work up relatively fast and I love that you can get at least three hot pads out of the skeins you need. This makes gift giving, housewarming and market prep insanely easy.

If you end up making these, make sure to tag me on Instagram and Facebook @oakandautumn and use #pizzahotpad so I can feature your makes on my page!
