It's a Wrap! Hot Plate

Lately I have been wanting to make fabric wrapped bowl.  Well, I wasn't quite feeling the bowl yesterday, so I decided to make a hot plate instead.  I had all of the supplies necessary for completion.  That was nice for a change. 

A few years ago, I took a class at my local quilt store and learned how to make a wrapped fabric bowl.  It was a great day spent with my sister-in-law.  We both came home with a fabric bowl. 

I used the leftover clothes line from the class and some fabric left over from another project. 

One of the really nice things about this project is that the strips don't have to be cut exactly.  Just cut somewhere between 1/2" and 3/4". 

Then wrap, wrap, wrap and pin as you go.  Another thing to love about this fabric, is that you can use up some of the small scraps that are left over at the finish of a project.

Presto!  One nifty place to put a hot pot to keep the counters and table safe from the heat!

I had so much fun making this one, I do believe that I can feel a bowl coming soon.  This project came out of the book It's A Wrap by Susan Breier.
