Oven Mitts for Little Hands

This is the Christmas project on my list today. I am making oven mitts for Jaiden and Arya to use in their play kitchen. The regular adult sizes are huge for their little hands so, I scaled them down to size. These are fairly quick and easy to make!

You'll need:
Approx. 2 12" squares of pre-quilted fabric
Approx. 2 12" squares of coordinating fabric
regular sized oven mitt (for pattern)
Approx. 2 6" pieces of bias tape

1. Using your oven mitt as a pattern, scale it down and mark on wrong side of pre-quilted material.

2. Cut out 2 out of the pre-quilted material and 2 from cotton fabric. Layer in the following order: cotton, pre-quilted right side up, pre-quilted wrong side up, and cotton. Use lots of pins to hold together.

3. Sew quilt binding to bottom edges of the oven mitt. Be sure to allow a little to hang over the sides. Make sure to catch both the cotton and pre-quilted fabric.

4. Sew oven mitt together using a 1/4" seam allowance. Turn right side out.

Here is the oven mitt in proportion to the regular size one:

Just as a note: These are in no way intended to be used in conjunction with a real oven.

Cute. My daughter made a bunch of these one year for her daughters and cousins. They are so fun!

Happy Thanksgiving to you!
