A“Steeping Teapot” Platter Pad is a great place to appliqué a teapot. This big, thick hot pad would easily also HOLD a teapot, big bowl or platter. Besides the teapot templates, the Christensen Creations downloadable instructions even include the quilting lines to trace for a swirl of steam escaping. Instructions for 3 sizes of hot pad are included.
The sample was made with an Oriental-inspired print, but a floral or even a solid would also be good.
