Sorry about the title!

I have a pair of silicon oven grippers (you know the ones that just cover your fingers, for lifting things out of the oven?). Well they also make wonderful bottom pinchers! 

So when it came to making the heart oven mitts for my Gifts class (November) I had to work hard at not seeing them as something else!

I first saw a picture of these here, but with no tutorial available I set to designing my own pattern.  It took 3 attempts before I got it just right (that would be the turquoise one!).

These can be made with deco weight or quilters’ cotton, but have heat resistant wadding inside the body and finger sections.

My 5 week Gifts course starting in November is called ‘One in One’, which means you can get one project made per evening.

These oven mitts are super quick to make!  I’ll tell you about the other gifts another day!

I hope the ladies who have signed up for the course know what they’re in for!!
