An oven mitt has an excellent surface for embellishment. We chose a Flourish Alphabet Monogram to personalize ours, joking how we could embroider “L” on one hand, “R” on the other — just in case you get confused when baking!
Two hearts are better than one, and our heart shaped oven mitts are the perfect pair. They slip on to give you a protected, flexible grip. Free patterns are offered for both the full heart shape as well as the unique curved pockets.
This pair of oven mitts has a tough industrial style: clean lines, simple patterns + bold machine-inspired accents. Light to mid-weight canvas and denim are excellent choices. Neutral tones and simple patterns keep the utilitarian flair.
Start with an off-the-shelf hot pad and mitt set – we found ours for $2 – add some simple fabric and trim details and voila: style on a shoestring and a great first make. It’s also an excellent ScrapBusters project.
Pull out some pretty fabrics from your scrap stash and blend them together into a happy mix of pattern and color. Each mitt uses up to four different fabrics. They’d make a great gift for wedding shower season!
