Heart Hotpads tutorial – the proper way and the cheating way to sew on Bias Tape

Last week we talked about bias tape and how to make your own. So today, let’s sew it on!
I love hotpads, potholders, whatever you prefer to call them.

You’ll find the complete tutorial HERE (and in the Tutorials link at the top of the blog)

I heart Bias Tape.
Just had to say it, right?
