Hi again, it’s Debbie from Sew Simple. I’d like you to meet my Kitchen Oven Mitt in Connecting Threads’ book Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. I designed this mitt for my personal use years ago. After I had a luncheon at my home for 22 ladies, they talked me into makings some for them and putting it into a pattern. I have always struggled with the mitts you purchase in stores that look like mittens. Then never stay on my hand and are very awkward when trying to pick up a pot or casserole dish from the oven. My mitt is so much more comfortable and made to fit you a little more snugly.
A good tip when making this mitt would be to read through all the instructions first. In fact, this is a GREAT tip for any pattern your purchase. This helps you to visualize what you need to do when time comes to sew. In fact, I sometimes read my patterns through several times to make sure I understand what the designer wants me to do. When deciding on fabric, look around the Connecting Threads site…they have amazing fabric choices. Connecting Threads used their novelty Canadian Flags Novelty Print for the Mitt in Fast, Fun, and More Gifty .
I love their Halloween, Spooks and Spells….what fun it is to have mitts for all seasons.
There are several Christmas lines that would make awesome gifts.
Plus if you purchase the downloadable pattern from Connecting Threads, it includes 2 hot pads and one Mivet…a item that does double duty as a Mitt and a Trivet. You will also receive a quick freebie in the pattern for a mini hot pad for all those lids that get too hot to handle.
I hope you enjoy my two additions to this wonderful “Gifty” book and enjoy making the Two Hour Apron and The Kitchen Oven Mitt for family, friends, wedding showers, neighbors, teachers and many more. In fact, make up a few extras to keep on hand for giveaway gifts at the last minute. Best of all, just have FUN!!!
Thank you so much for all your support in purchasing the Fast, Fun and More Gifty book from Connecting Threads. I’m excited to work on the other patterns in the book too. ( Got some great ideas for Christmas so I’d best get started sewing)
