I finished this embroidered hot-pad a month or so ago, but could not post it until now since was a gift for a friend. It was a scrap-bag project. I do not know what kind of cloth the back is, possibly a crape or rayon. I chose it because it was blue with small white roses and my friend likes roses and blue. The rose on the front is hand embroidered. Left over quilt batting is in the middle and it was machine quilted.
