I made these oven mitts and pot holder because there is a lot of baking during winter. I used scraps from my Sugar BOM, some neutrals (brown, deep purple and tan) and some polka dots and then I played with some FMQ.
|The label still on the works - I used a Micron pen to write the other info.|
I used Insul-Bright by the Warm Company as a thermal batting, plus a layer of cotton batting. It is a little noisy and crinkly which I am hoping will fade away, because of the reflective metallic layer that protects from the heat. The bias binding on the mitt was a pain to get it machine stitched. Plus, I wasn't very happy with my bobbin thread showing up a bit (I used light gray on top and dark brown on the bobbin) but anyways, I want to make one for myself now.
What kind of thermal batting do you use when making oven mitts and pot holders?
