Great Use for Leftover Skinny Fabric Strips!

These red mitts are super easy to make and would be lovely around the holidays. This is also a great oven mitt pattern for year around use. Make them up with fabrics that fit your kitchen decor. Or, make a set for each season.

French Braid Oven Mitts

While you’re sewing, think about making extras to give as gifts. Anyone who cooks is sure to love a set of made-by-you oven mitts.

The mitt shape itself can be traced from a mitt you already have that fits well. Or, use the pattern on the Insul-Bright batting package (Insul-Bright is used for heat proofing).

The “braiding” is adapted from the log cabin block and is constructed with a quilt-as-you-go technique.

The tutorial, by 2 Strings, is well illustrated and easy to follow. You’ll have your own unique set of oven mitts made up in no time!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
