Mini Oven Mitt

Mini Oven Mitt

I've had this pinned for ages but just never found the right material to make them with. Well that was my excuse, have I told you about my epic procrastination skills? :)

Well I finally made it! A cute little mini oven mitt!

Cute huh? It's much less bulky than a big oven glove, easier to get a grip on small things and it doesn't take up so much room in an over packed kitchen! I got the inspiration over at The Idea Room and there's an awesome tutorial and pattern there too. I changed mine a tiny bit and used a plain fabric for the inside part instead of two contrasting fabrics for the back and hand parts.

These are the front parts, where your fingers will go! The underside is a plain white fabric and there's some batting in between.

The back of my little soon to be oven mitt.

I had serious issues with the bias tape. One of many attempts here!

It's the perfect size for gripping hot muffin trays as you take them out of the oven. 

And it has a little loop to hang it up with so it's not in the way! :)

Here's the other side. And the not so perfectly sewn bias tape. But I still think it's kinda perfectly cute! 

Things I've learnt:
- I used bias tape for the edge of the hand parts too instead of coordinating ribbon (as per the tutorial). It was easier and I kinda like the look more.
- But I had so much trouble with the bias tape around the outside. Like so much trouble. I think I sewed and ripped the stitches out 3 times! Then I found this amazing tutorial - How to Sew Bias Tape the Proper Way over at Made. It didn't turn out perfectly but it's good enough for me! :)
