Watermelon Hot Pad

I am back at it. I took a break from typing up beanie patterns to type up this pattern, and my other new little project.

Side note I actually have four new beanie patterns. But I think I am gonna do a release for those starting at my birthday until the end of september to help you guys with market stock, or shop stock.

For now, I want to hone in on the hot pad train I’ve been on lately, because they have made my heart so happy.

ASIDE from my obsession with beanies, these hot pads are fun and quick and perfect for so many different occasions. Think gifting for housewarming, wedding gifts, birthday gifts for health buffs, birthday gifts for foodies, chefs or bakers. It’s such a versatile make and that is why i love them.

They’re also helping to curb my snacking because they take such little time, and i like to complete them in one shot *if* my girls allow me.

If you aren’t already, i suggest subscribing, that way you get updated as soon as a new pattern goes live. I sometimes don’t post until the following week on instagram about a pattern release because i tend to schedule my instagram posts a week or so out.

I will also be working in the following weeks to add pages that have specific links to each pattern so that you don’t have to through tons of blog posts to find my different beanies or hot pads or the other random patterns i have.

I have so many ideas for these hot pads, And I can’t wait to starting pumping them out and sharing the patterns with you. For now, you can start with these pretty watermelons and embrace the mid summer vibes its giving.
