How to make a Teapot Trivet or Placemats
Here's a photo of two piece pattern. When I did this pictorial I was making two trivets. You'll see the fabric changes. Cut two of each pattern piece, batting and back-side lining to keep the fuzz from clogging your machine. 
After you have sewn, turned and top stitched the handle, use the two photos below to place the handle. First place the handle where you'd like it to be.  Once you've put the handle in its place, flip it over so that the ends face the seam area. Now you're ready to make the trivet.
The back lining, batting, first teapot face up and handle are in place. Now put the second teapot face down in the stack and sew around the edge with a 1/4" seam. leave a space open at the bottom to turn the trivet inside out. 
Clip close to the seam before you turn.
 
The photo on the left shows the turned, pressed and pinned trivet ready to be top stitched. The photo on the right shows the trivet's edges top stitched and a decorative heart stitched in the center. 
 
These trivets are not decorated with a teapot button at the knob. Of course you can do that! The Teapot Placemat shows that decoration. When you look at the placemat you can see the similar shape. Yes! You can do this!
