Oven Mitt Tutorial
Supplies for making your own oven mitt
1/4 yard cotton fabric
1/4 yard coordinating cotton fabric
Directions for making a quilted oven mitt
Cut 2 each 9″ X 15″ rectangles of the cotton fabrics, cotton batting, and Insul-brite
Repeat for other set of rectangles.
Download oven mitt pattern top and bottom. Print patterns and tape pieces together.
Stack the two quilted pieces on top of each other, right sides together.
Place pattern on top and draw around the pattern. This is the stitching line.
Stitch. I reinforce the thumb area so I can trim and make a slit right up to the stitching line.
Cut a contrasting piece of fabric 7″ X 15″ for the band. Iron piece in half lengthwise, then open and bring edges to the center and press again.
Stitch all the way around, folding end over when finished.
