{Heart Oven Mitt Tutorial by Dresden}

Today I bring you a sweet Valentiney tutorial from guest blogger Dresden, of www.dresdencarrie.com Enjoy!








This heart oven mitt is so cute! The little half hearts are perfect to slip your hands in and grab anything hot. This would make an adorable Valentine's gift with a bag of chocolate chips or any baking supply.



Materials needed:

-2 fat quarters (or scraps, the heart isn't too large)
-heart pattern (found here)
-batting, Insul-Bright is best and can be found at any sewing store
-trim (if desired, pom pom trim is adorable on these!)
-sewing supplies


Steps:

1. Cut:

    2 large hearts on the fold of fabric
    1 large heart on the fold of batting (I used Insul-Bright because it's heat resistant) 
    2 small heart halves
    3 strips of fabric or bias tape pieces about 10 inches long

2. Attach bias tape & trim to straight edge of the heart halves

3. If using a strip of fabric make a loop for hanging by folding fabric in half twice and stitching along edge length wise

4. Make a sandwich in this order:

    batting
    front large heart face up (green heart in picture)
    half hearts placed like they are shown in the finished mitt face up
    loop for hanging (fold in half and pin near top of heart)
    back large heart face down

5. Sew around edge and leave a gap open for turning

6. Turn right side out through gap

7. Hand stitch closed

  3. Thank you Jessie for your most generous tutorial. I saw these at a craft show recently, so now I can make some for Christmas presents for my daughters, all 5 of them, and my son too for that matter, he is the cook in his house!
