Spiked Hot Pad

Spiked Hotpad Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This CD hot pad is quick to make. If you have old CD's lying around, this would be a great way to use them. You can also use this pattern as a potholder. Just cut 2 pieces of felt 6" in diameter and place them inside instead of using a CD. You could actually make a kitchen set, a hot pad and potholders that all match!
