Large Hot Pad with Cricut Maker Tutorial
Ever just use a towel for your hot casserole dishes? Or two pot holders? We’ll check this out! I’ve made a casserole hot pad! No more struggling for something to protect your counter. Heck, I decorated it too! Let me show you how to make a casserole hot pad. Cut by hand or use your Cricut Maker.
This post probably contains affiliated links. My full disclosure policy is boring, but you can find it HERE.
You might have a few of these things on hand, so gather what you need and we can get started.
You can use the Cricut Maker to cut these but it’s just as to cut the pieces with scissors. Cut 2 pieces of fabric 11 x 16” and 2 pieces of the insulBrite the same size.
Put right sides of the fabric together and the two pieces of insulBrite on top of them.
Stitch around the edge with a 1/4” seam leaving a gap to turn it right side out. Stitch on the fabric and trim seams. Clip the corners and turn using a poker if necessary to get crisp corners. Top stitch around the total edge closing the hole.
Design for the Large Hot Pad with Cricut
So now it’s time for the fun part! In Design Space, I created 5 designs to iron-on my large hot pad. Always, always mirror your iron-on image. I, as well as many others I’m sure, have learned the hard way! Read the instructions on Design Space as you click through the cutting process to ensure you do everything properly.
Press the Design on the Large Hot Pad
Heat the EasyPress2 to 315 degrees. Press the large hot pad well to ensure there is no moisture or wrinkles. Place the design in the large hot pad. I fold my designs in half and find the center of the hot pad then eyeball it.
Press the design for 315 degrees for 30 seconds. Put light pressure on the EasyPress2 and do a warm peel. For best results, flip the large hot pad and press for 15 seconds more to ensure a good adhesion for the design. Be sure to always read all the instructions on the Cricut EasyPress Heat Transfer Guide.
Alright, there you go! I’m happy with my large hot pads. The gold on the print was a poor choice. It doesn’t stand out like the others, but other than that, I think they turned out great! Can’t wait to give them to all the recipients!
Are you going to make one? I would love for you to share your project and comments below.
