Hot pad is common used in the household. Hot pad patterns I often see are made of wood, most of which are in round shapes. Here how to make hot pads is mainly made of felt. And it is in a shape of maple leaf.
The hot pad patterns have a loop at the leaf, with which you can hang the hot pads on the wall when you don't use them. No more descriptions, I'd rather show you how to make hot pads right now and let you see what it is.
