More of my Christmas projects:
My sister hinted at me, when I visited her in November, that her current oven mitts were getting burned around the edges and it might be time for a new pair. So I spent an afternoon making a new pair for a Christmas present.
I love these. This pattern is so easy to make. I had a pattern that had the thumb off to the side, and trying to sew around a small thumb piece drove me nuts. This pattern just has three pieces. Nothing is too small; no sharp turns while sewing. Making these as a crazy quilt gets rid of the small scraps of stuff I hate to throw away, but are too small for a normal quilting project.
I favor the bright colors. But rusty/green one looks pretty cool, too.
Mom complained that she has old oven mitts, and she didn't get any for Christmas. I foresee making another pair in the near future....
