Cinnamon Pot Mats

When you place your HOT pot on top...

...The fragrance of cinnamon will come wafting through filling the air with a beautiful aroma.

What you need

Desired cotton fabric
Sheet wadding (quilt batting)
Sewing machine access
Ground cinnamon or cinnamon Oil


Step 1: Start by working out what size pot holder you want. Approx. 30 cm X 30 cm is suitable.

Step 2: Cut your fabric into the size you require allowing for 1/2 inch hems.

Step 3: Sew 3 sides of your fabric closed and slip in the sheet wadding through the last opening. You will need to either begin hand sewing or machine sewing this end closed.

Step 4: Just before you complete the closure sprinkle about a teaspoon of cinnamon powder into the project or sprinkle your drops of oil onto the wadding prior to placing it inside.

Step 5: You can finish it off by sewing some diagonals along the top to keep the wadding in place. The quilting also makes it look very decorative.
