Not just a feast for your eyes, our retro oven mitts use a fantastic reflective fabric that bounces heat back to its source. Better still, they can be washed in a machine and tumble dried, making them a fabulous choice for everyday use.

Essentials
  1. Fabric: cotton, patterned, 25cm
  2. Wadding: Insul-Bright, 25cm
  3. Binding, cotton, 25mm
  4. Binding foot
Dimensions List
  1. 16.5cm x 21cm
    1. Using the templates cut a heart and pair of finger slots from patterned cotton, snipping the notches as indicated. Cut another heart from Insul-Bright and a third from a different cotton print.

    2. Pin coordinating binding along the straight edge of the finger slots and stitch into place. Pin the two cotton heart-shaped mitt pieces together with wrong sides facing and the Insul-Bright in between.

    3. Using the notches as a guide, lay the finger slots in place. Tack through all of the layers, using a long running stitch and contrasting thread, to hold them in place. Secure binding around the heart, starting at the bottom point and using a binding foot, if possible. Trim any excess material down to 1cm, fold under and hand stitch.

    4. Fold a 10cm strip of binding in half and straight stitch along the side. Bend to form a loop and stitch the raw edges into place at the centre of the top of the mitt, to finish.
