- Cut the following: ten 1-3/4-inch squares of red dotted fabric, ten 1-3/4-inch squares of yellow dotted fabric, one 3x6-3/4-inch rectangle of striped fabric, and a loop from backing fabric.
- Using embroidery floss, embroider "Sweet Treats" on the striped fabric. (Or download and follow our free pattern, below.)
- Lay out the red dotted squares, yellow dotted squares, and embroidered striped rectangle according to the diagram. Sew together the squares in rows; sew the rows to the rectangle to make the hot pad front. Stitch and baste the loop to the top left-hand corner of hot pad front.
- Line the hot pad front with batting. Layer the front and backing with right sides together; tuck the loop between the layers. Stitch around the outside edges leaving an opening for turning. Trim batting and backing to the 1/4-inch seam allowance. Trim corners; turn right side out and press. Sew opening closed and add beads.
