Oven Mitts-- My newest creations

I made some oven mitts yesterday. It was my first time making oven mitts, so I am super happy with the way they turned out ;).

I brought some oven mitts from a mommy's boutique I attended. It was a set of 2 for $10. The oven mitts were really cute, but there were a couple of things I did not like about it. First, the oven mitts were not lined on the inside. Second, the fabric used was not very good fabric. After one wash in the wash machine, the oven mitts looked like they have been used for ages. Because I wash the oven mitts once a week (they get very icky), I need them to be durable.

Anyhow, I decided to make my own using some nice fabrics I brought. Of course, cheaper fabrics could be purchased at Joann's for about $4 per yard. But, I wanted to use fabrics I really like (since I do use oven mitts almost daily), so I ended up using fabrics that were $8.99 a yard. The material used for oven mitts ended up costing about $12 for a set of 2 mitts. It was more expensive than the oven mitts I brought (not to mention the time it took me to make them), but I am sooo happy with the way they look and turned out, I think I am going to make them as gifts for birthdays and holidays this year.

Chocolate Candy Oven Mitts... Yummy! I made them so that both sides look the same. I forgot to take photo that shows inside of the oven mitts. The fabric I used for the inside was green fabric with pink polk dots.

This was the second set I made for my self. I am calling them Brown Floral Oven Mitts.

This is what the other side of the oven mitts look like :).

After making 4 oven mitts for myself, I had just enough insulated material (I brought 1 yard of it at the fabric shop), to make 2 small oven mitts for DD.

You can see how small DD's oven mitts are next to mine.
