I made big girl and little girl oven mitts as Christmas gifts this year. This cupcake set was for Oscar's BFF, Audrey, who also received a brand-new play kitchen from her grandparents. Audrey's mom made her an adorable apron with this cupcake fabric, and I contributed matching oven mitts.
For a pattern, I traced one of Oscar's mini oven-mitts from a Melissa and Doug set. But I also did a little research and found a kid-sized oven mitt tutorial at Ikat Bag for you to reference if you'd like to make some. Of course, toddlers should never handle hot pans, but these mitts have a layer of Insul-Bright (a heat-resistant batting) inside. You know, just in case.
Grown ups love new oven mitts, too. I made a set for my mother-in-law using the tutorial at The Crafty Cupboard.
I love this pattern! It is the kind of oven mitt with the thumb on the front instead of the side. Easier to use, in my opinion. I'm also a huge fan of this fabric. It is a home dec fabric that I found at JoAnn's, and it wants me to buy more and sew it into throw pillows for my living room.
