My 15 minute makeover!!!!




Well, technically it wasn't me... it was my hot pads!!!

Mine are all grungy and nasty-looking, even when they are just out of the washer! Being the thrifty(AKA cheap) gal that I am, I won't toss them until they are useless!

I hate serving folks food when they see those hot pads- kinda says

"dirty-kitchen"- so today- in a moment of inspiration and a clean sewing room I made quick envelope covers for them.

Problem solved!!! And I used scrap fabric, so it didn't cost me a dime!!!! WOO!HOO! My favorite kind of solution!~

The set only took 15 minutes total-that includes picking which scrap fabric to use!!!

I was JUST looking at my hot pads last night and decided it was time for replacements. I might just save myself some money and fix mine up like yours! very nice!
