We’re teaming up with our sister site, RecipeChatter, to bring you the Love and Oven Mitts charity drive! Starting now, we’re calling on sewists like you to help us out by making an oven mitt or potholder for the cause. The gist of it is that you can enter to win a prize package by sewing up kitchen supplies and sending them in. We’ve already posted our adorable potholder tutorial on Friday, and today we’re sharing with you an easy oven mitt tutorial! Get started on them now, and check our intro post for all of the details for the giveaway! This tutorial is brought to you by the wonderful Carolyn from Carolyn’s Canvas!
My favorite oven mitt ever hangs over the oven handle so is available at all times. It is a long rectangle with a mitt on each end. No more grabbing the nearest dish towel, no more rustling through drawers for 2 oven mitts to get that casserole out of the oven.
Nope, this one is always right there where it has been since my sister, Jackie, made it for me. When Seams and Scissors needed a oven mitt pattern I told the editor about this one and she thought it sounded interesting. It was ok when I checked with Jackie to use her idea and she told me what she had used and how easy it is to make.
The Dual Oven Mitt would make a great craft bazaar item. I am thinking about making covers for my small appliances just to match my oven mitt.
You will need:
2 [8″ x 30″] rectangles of fabric [I used 2 coordinating fabrics]
2 [8″ x 18″] rectangles for mitts
2 [8″ x 30″ ] rectangles batting
1 [8″ x 30″ ] rectangle Fairfield’s Solarize-insulating thermal barrier fabric
To make the Dual Hand Mitt:
Fairfield’s insulating thermal barrier fabric-shiny side down
2 layers of batting
1 fabric rectangle
folded fabric mitt on each end-wrong sides together
sew all around layers
lay second fabric rectangle onto sewn layers-right side facing mitt side
sew all around leaving opening for turning
turn right side out-sew opening-top stitch all around
Thank you for joining us here at Seams and Scissors
May the joy of crafting be upon you,
