I seem to have a lot of UFOs (Un-Finished Objects) floating about my creative space at the moment. I really need to finish some of these UFOs before moving on to other projects.
I finally finished this particular UFO which has been languishing in the corner of my space for many weeks. These are oven finger mitts. I have small hands – well, in comparison to store-bought oven mitts they seem pretty small. I chanced upon this tutorial recently and thought I would have a go at making some finger mitts. I used scraps which I had left over from other projects to make these.
Here’s how they work ... see?
I like that they are a lot less bulky than large oven mitts. I used two layers of batting – one of which was a ‘thermo’ reflective fleece for things like oven mitts etc. The bulkiness at the edges made it a bit awkward to sew the bias binding on. I have also learnt that I am really REALLY bad at sewing around curves! I need more practise. These are supposed to be nice even ovals – but they’ve ended up being more than slightly wonky ovals. Definately need more practise.
