These oven mitts are super easy to make in one evening, which make them an awesome gift. I made these yellow and aqua elbow length oven mitts for Shawn’s mom for Mother’s Day. They have been loved and are now a little dirty – Just how I like them oven mitts! 🙂 To make these oven mitts I used this Oven Mitt Tutorial.
I added a hanging loop so they can be hung up for easy storage.
Changes that I made to the pattern was that I decided to quilt both sides of the mitts for more visual interest and because I just love quilting so much.
Layering of the fabric:
1st layer – Outer fabric on the bottom with the good side facing down on the bottom
2nd layer – Insul-Bright (The fabric that prevents the heat from going through your oven mitts)
3rd layer – Batting
4th layer – Lining Fabric with the good side facing up
** I lined the inside of the gloves with some fabric that I did not care about so much because it is barely seen.
** You need to make 4 of these fabric sandwiches to make 2 oven mitts.
These are another set of oven mitts that I made for Shawn’s sister in law.
I made them exactly the same way as Helen’s oven mitts…
But for some reason the thumbs curved in and I didn’t know how to fix them. I thought these crazy thumbs gave them a little personality :), so I left them.
I loved these oven mitts so much I made a pare for myself. My home have a white and aqua colour scheme so I Made some oven mitts to match.
I hope you find these oven mitts inspiring in the creation of your own pair! Have fun creating!
