Fall Time Oven Mitts
Fall Time Oven Mitts
Today we are going to make a pair of Fall Time Oven Mitts for the 6″x10″/150mmx250mm Hoop. Each Mitt is done in 2 hoopings, an upper-side and an under-side, which are then stitched together by machine to complete. This is an easy pattern and stitches out quickly. All the fabric used is poly-cotton with a heat-proof batting.
