Hexagon Spiderweb Hot Pads and FREE Pattern

The current issue of Make It! Patchwork Magazine is on the newsstands and my hexagon hot pads are being re-run. There are only two process shots in the magazine (for space) and I think you need to see all of them.

First, here is one of the hot pads. It's the only shot I have, even though I made four of these. My daughter owns the set, or I would take a few more pics.

Hexagon Spiderweb trivet: 12" x 13-3/4"
I used the Bella Collection by Lotta Jansdotter (for Windham Fabrics) and chose two colors: blue and yellow.

You can download the pattern with photos and templates at the end of this post. Here are a few of the steps to entice you.

Two strips cut 3-1/2" x wof are sewn together. Then cut into 60 degree triangles using the 6-1/2" horizontal line on a ruler.

Six of the wedges make a whole hexagon:
Sew the strip sets together into sections as shown
Use the pieced hexagon to cut out the backing:
Press final seam open. Cut out backing using the pieced hexagon as your guide
Add a piece of batting and stitch around the six sides, leaving a 5-6" opening for turning.

Sew through all layers, leaving an opening for turning.
Clip the corners:

Turn right side out:
