Fun little Hot Pads made with printed antique images. Early 20th century Jar Rings came by the dozen in square cardboard boxes with the manufacturers logo on the top. These images (4" X 4") printed on cotton sateen are ready to sew. The packet of 4 comes with a pattern for a quilted Hot Pad. Finished size is 8" X 8".
I trim the white edges to 1/4"...which puts the sewing line right on the dull aqua border's edge.
There is a paper backing which is easily removed before sewing.

Each design is dated. This one is 1930. We sell the Jar Rings as well as additional sets of Vintage Kitchen Cupboards (4) and Vintage Stoves (4). Each packet comes with the Hot Pad pattern. These make great little gifts to have on hand....or to treat yourself.

Karen Melhouse of Canon Falls MN has designed a lovely center panel for a quilt featuring this fabric....a simple appliqued vase with a spray of embroidered flowers using motifs from the print.
