The Simply Sweet fabrics on the two mitts are so bright and cheery, it made me want to slip them on and wear them around the kitchen, just waiting for something hot to pull out of the oven.

My Backyard Eden: Prettied-Up Pot Holder. See my old sad potholder there? Kind of worn out, huh? See how it’s cozying up to those fabric scraps? I think it’s dreaming of a Spring makeover. First, I gave it a haircut. I cut two pieces of fabric about a half inch larger on each side. When I stitched the pieces together, I squared off the corners so it would be easier to turn later. I topstitched around the edge, catching the unstitched opening edges under. I thought it might be cute with a little more top stitching so I went around a few times, using the edge of my presser foot as a guide for the inside stitching lines. Easy peasy! This post will be linked up to some of these fabulous blog parties. Scrappy Oven Mitts. I’ve been wanting to make the oven mitt from Denyse Schmidt’s book ever since I saw all of these fantastic ones on the DS Flickr Group. I started by piecing together the FABULOUS scraps from Amy’s parcel to create fabric sheets.

I used one layer of Warm & Natural batting and one layer of Insul-Brite. I waited until today to post this because I tested the Insul-Brite’s heat reflecting capacity with last night’s dinner. I made this easy and absolutely delicious crab recipe (first one in the article) which required my oven to be at 500 degrees. The potholders did a fine job. I think one more layer of regular batting, which is what Insul-Brite suggests, would have kept my hands from feeling any heat. I just don’t think my sewing machine could handle another layer (x 2 when joining the front to back) so I plan to experiment with single layer potholders instead of mitts. I made the first mitt using the DS pattern.

I also save all of my left over binding strips from quilts I make. Microwave Mitt Pattern. After playing around with my microwave fingertip mitts pattern I've decided to revise it. For one thing the measurements I was using made the mitts too large for my liking. So here are what I consider better instructions On a piece of butcher's paper or on a blank piece of paper draw a rectangle 7 ½” x 4 ½”. Then cut out on the lines of the rectangle. Fold the rectangle in half lengthwise and then again widthwise and cut an arc. Because the paper is folded you will end up with all corners the same. Fold your fabric right sides together and iron the butcher's paper template, wax side down, to your fabric.

Cut one more shape from cotton batting, and another from Insulbrite. These end pieces will now become your template for the finger pieces of your mitt. Open the binding out and pin to your mitt end. Fold and pin the binding around the straight end of your mitt and edge stitch down. Sew a small square of fabric on the back of one of the large mitt pieces about 1/3 of the way down.

Dishtowel Potholder Tutorial - artsy-crafty babe. For this project, I usually use 100% woven cotton dishtowels from the dollar store. It’s best to use something that isn’t too bulky. 1.Start with a standard sized dishtowel, preferably one that is not terrycloth. 2. Cut off the hems and any tags from the back of the dishtowel. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. At this point you can leave the potholder as is, which is nice if you have a pretty printed dishtowel, but if you’d like to jazz up a plain dishtowel/potholder, the possibilities are endless.
