Folded Star Hot Pad

Class Description

This class will instruct how to make a folded star hot pad constructed on a printed template. This technique is fun and addictive! The star is built with 4 layers of folded triangles plus batting, making it thick enough to protect a surface from a hot plate. Start sewing now, and your Christmas gift sewing will be well underway!

Wednesday July 5, 1 – 4
