I'm in love with my oven glove

I really am. That Yummy Lunchtime, Pop N Kids by Lecien fabric is the cutest print ever and is so perfect for the kitchen. I've been needing a new oven glove for a while (my old was was a disgrace) and it's been on my to sew list since I saw Adrianne's oven mitt tutorial last year. I love this tutorial, it's easy to follow and I much prefer this style to individual gloves - you can never find one of them!


Being honest I didn't follow it exactly, I had no A3 paper and kind of just wanted it done so I traced round my old one. I'm pretty sure the measurements are similar though. I also used yardage rather than FQs but the tutorial made that easy to do. 


I quilted it in the same way because it was quick and easy and looks good. It also lets that sweet print shine. I used Petit Point in Navy, Petit Points by Michael Miller for the main fabric and Graph Check in Orange for the binding.

Then I took it outside and there was photobombing:

Now at least I will be smiling while I'm in the kitchen!

  15. I love it/them, but by the state of my Tesco gloves, I think I would be wasting good fabric after about 3 days of use!!
