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.

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.

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. 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. Optional: If you wish you can add a magnet to your mitt so that it can be hung on the side of your microwave (if it's metal) or a nearby appliance such as the refrigerator. How to Sew Oven Mitts.

Kind of like those 'idiot mittens' you used to have as a kid; one mitten on the each end of a string running through the arms of your coat. However, we didn't think 'idiot hot pads' sounded very good. I don't know about you, but I always set down my pot holders on opposite sides of the kitchen so when I need both to pull something out of the oven or off the stove, I never seem to have two within reach.

It’s easy – I’ll show you how.
