I’ve been digging through some of my photo archives to look at craft projects I’ve worked on over the years. I typically take photos of every craft work on or gift I give. I find this especially useful when planning birthday or Christmas gifts for the next year. It’s also interesting to see how my crafting style or skills have evolved.
Making the oven mitts took a bit of patience. There were many parallel lines to sew! I used the evenly spaced polka dot pattern of this fabric as a guide while quilting the layers together. I was able to keep my lines moderately straight this way. Also, my sewing machine had a tough time sewing through so many layers (4 layers of fabric, plus two of insulation.
I would definitely follow this same tutorial again if I choose to make someone else a pair for a gift. I think it would be extra cute to make a coordinating apron to go along with the mitts! What do you think?
