I wanted to make pot mitts and so I did. I took the free Hoffman Pattern I have listed on my sidebar and tweaked it a bit. Personally I found the mid-line pocked to be to small and knew I wouldn't like it. So instead I went with the pocket you can see on the upper right pot holder. The patter also called for two pieces of fabric folded in half for the part over your hand, that seemed skippy and you never know when the oven timer is going off and you might try to grab something out of the oven with the pot holder on upside down - can you hear the voice of experience? So I stuck all the heat resistant batting in there that I could as well.
These are quilt thick with two layers of fabric plus two layers of batting in each side, so I shoved the tops through the serger before I added the binding. Can you tell I ran out of the blue binding? I think the red looks nice though. I was planning on giving these as pairs which would mean one person would get a red and a blue. What do you think about that? Or should I share the love and give them as singles?
Currently I'm trying to think of what to attach to the top so these can hang? DH just got home and when I told him my concerns about the pretty little bows touching 350 degree metal, he said they would be ruined. So what can I use that my little trees can hag up?
I hope you had a good day sewing. I spent some time shopping the preview ads for Black Friday. I wont be venturing out, but I bet I can find a loyal husband who will do it for me...
