Oven Mitts and Potholders Tutorial
Ever wonder how to make your own oven mitts and potholders. I love making my own oven mitts and potholders because I can use exactly the fabric that I want and am not limited to what I find in the shops. For this project I used some charming Santa Claus fabric and red and white dot fabric for the perfect Christmas accessories for my kitchen. I must admit that these DIY oven mitts and potholders came out really cute. I just love them.
As usual I had these remnants in my massive stash of remnants (I am trying to use them up but I keep buying more). If you don’t have fabrics in your stash I recommend that you head over to Hobby Lobby or Fabric.com to find the perfect fabric for your project. I used basic novelty cotton and quilting cotton for my project.
This tutorial walks you step by step on how to sew your own oven mitts and potholders simply and easily using insul bright. The insul bright. is what prevents the pots from getting hot so it is a necessity for this project.
