I'm behind in the calendar projects again. In my defense, I had until Sunday to finish this tutorial, and since I had today off, I thought that today was Sunday. It is not.
The January 14-17 feature was a mini oven mitt from My Longest Year. BUT! since I had a need for a big person sized oven mitt I modified the pattern to make a full sized mitt. Instead of putting an unbatted (word? not sure) band at the wrist I just added three inches to the template and cut the lining, outer fabric and Insul-Brite (since I was making a real mitt, I wanted to use a heat resistant batting) all the same size.
This is another project that I managed to make using just a fat quarter. I used the same fabric for the mitt, lining and binding. Instead of sewing a loop to hang the mitt from I used some jumbo rick rack. I also, since I was already behind in time, didn't quilt the mitt.
My current oven mitt is a stained, ripped and scratchy masterpiece with sailboats and "Welcome to the Caribbean" printed on it. This is most definitely an improvement.
