Recognize the fabric? 🙂 I’m pretty proud of this one, but somehow I completely forgot to post about it!
I finished it more than a month ago, but it was a birthday present, so I had to wait to blog about it. The birthday was more than a week ago, and then I just forgot.
My aunt used to have this oven mitt with a heat proof fabric on one side, and it was the best oven mitt ever. But eventually it was so worn out that the heat resistance was pretty much gone. She looked everywhere for years and couldn’t find any one like it. So then I got the idea to search the internet for that kind of fabric, because if I could get some, I could just make her a new mitt! I found the fabric here before Christmas, but I never found the time to sew then, so it became a birthday present instead. And I think it was a huge success 🙂 She tested it and said it worked great, so I’m happy. I might use what’s left of the fabric for some new potholders for us later.
I made the mitt in two parts and with a double layer of padding in between. Naturally the opening on top was too small to fit around the sewing machine, so I had to do the final seam by hand.
Not too shabby, though, I think 😛
