Ho ho ho, it is December and here is the quilted Christmas oven mitt I sewed by using the basic 9-patch quilt block in my previous tutorial. Doesn’t it fill with the scent of Christmas? I smell cinnamon, berries, clove, peppermint, buttery cookies, fruit cakes, gingerbread, roasted turkey….. yum yum!!! Can you smell them too?
You may adapt the tutorial to make oven mitt to suit other festive, just go by color theme and prints, develop from the basic and you will be able to create lots of mitts to sew as gifts too. Please note that my mitten pattern could be a little smaller for you since I have a small hand, please print out the pattern, check the size and adjust the size accordingly if necessary. Otherwise, you can trace the pattern from your favorite oven mitt. The mitten is thick, so give more allowance for the size of the pattern too.
Just now, I was talking to a friend of mine about how my parents used to celebrate Christmas during my childhood… it sure is a piece of great memory to keep. I always wanted to give great memories for my kids to keep and I hope all my crafts will help me to achieve this mission.
Merry Christmas and happy sewing!
