This project has been in the back of my mind for such a long time that it's actually ridiculous. In theory, now that it's over I should be inspired to bake, but I really just want to make another pair for everyone I know.
My kitchen - and the majority of my house - is very blue. At times it can feel quite dark and overwhelming, but I'm slowly brightening the place up with white furniture and yellow and orange accents. It's a colour combination that I really love, so these bright new oven mitts are super exciting.
Well, as exciting as something like an oven mitt can actually be...
It's a really satisfying project for someone (like me) who doesn't really have the patience for large-scale quilting but still wants to play with all the pretty fat-quarters in the fabric store. I literally sat on the floor of Lincraft for 20 minutes before choosing these three prints - sorry Shawn!
I drew up my own pattern for these mitts - I wanted a cuter shape than the generic glove style. It turned out pretty comfortable, but there are a few things I'll tweak before making them again.
I took quite a few pictures during construction, so if it's something that people would be interested in, I'd be happy to post the pattern with a tutorial some time soon.
What do you think?
They'd make a lovely Mother's Day gift, actually. Hey, for once I have great timing!
