Wedding Gift

On July 16, 2011, my cousin Julia got married.  I made her and here husband a couple personalized hot pads for a wedding gift.


The hearts hot pad is made of jean fabric on the front and the leafy fabric on the back that is the same as one of the hearts.

The monogrammed hot pad is made of recycled jean pants.  For the K (initial of their last name), I printed off the K off the computer and then traced it on the fabric and cut it out - not too fun with all those curves:)  But I do like how it turned out, even if it was a bit more work!!

For both the hearts and K, I put interfacing on the back to make them a little less flimsy, then I used glue stick to put them on to the jean and sewed around the edges to keep them on.  Once they're washed, they'll probably both fray on the edges, but hopefully it'll look cute like that:)

I hope they enjoy them and have a wonderful, blessed marriage!!
