8. DIY Easy Oven Mitt

Sewing Projects for The Home - Easy Oven Mitt - Free DIY Sewing Patterns, Easy Ideas and Tutorials for Curtains, Upholstery, Napkins, Pillows and Decor

I had always wanted to make a DIY oven mitt and about a year ago my mother in law gave me a box of fabrics and other sewing odds and ends. Among the goodies was this hand drawn paper oven mitt pattern. It looked so easy! I was excited to share it here on the blog and this week I finally sat down to make it. It literally takes about 1/2 an hour. I suppose you could fancy it up with patchwork and more elaborate quilting and let it take you a whole hour if you would like! Begin by printing out the pattern pieces, cutting them out and taping the 2 halves together. Follow instructions on the pattern piece to cut out your fabric and batting pieces on the fold. Make sure you cut the interior fabric 1″ longer than the others to make the hem in the last step. I love sewing decor ideas for the kitchen, and people love buying these for Christmas gifts.

These tissue pouches are super easy to make (under 15 minutes) and my version is double sided! The extra pocket is just the right size to hold a mini bottle of hand sanitizer and a lip gloss. Perfect to battle those germs at school or on the

I use a little zippered pouch to carry around my earbuds since they are the fancy microphone ones and I don’t want them to break or get tangled.

I can see these as the perfect gift for teenage cousins or nieces or girlfriends or even teacher gifts. Fun, quick, and cute! It doesn’t take very much fabric so you could even use scraps! Sometimes I have the perfect fabric for something but I only have a fat quarter, or I want to make something extra with the leftovers from another project. This is perfect for that.
