I made another pair of oven gloves a couple of weeks ago, again using this great tutorial by Adrienne. I’d not written about it or even got them photographed but was spurred on by Cindy showing off her lovely hot
pants pads to do something about it.
This is the pair I made back in December:
They get used frequently which means they need washing but I didn’t want burnt hands while they were in the wash so decided that we needed another pair. I’m guessing if I searched hard enough I might find a pair in a cupboard somewhere but sewing is more fun than searching!
As before I used denim from an ‘old’ pair of jeans, these were from a charity shop pair that were very large and in excellent condition so I really got my money’s worth! I used the dusty pink Kettle Stripe by Melody Miller Ruby Star Shining, it’s a cotton/linen mix so slightly thicker and more hardwearing than a cotton. I quilted the main piece with Aurifil 1240, a dark burgundy that looked perfect with the coffee pots. I think the quilting is crucial to the oven gloves, holds the layers together well but doesn’t make them too stiff to use:
The binding is Sour Apple a Kona cotton which was a pretty good match with the green coffee pots. I did forget to include a hanging loop so had to do some unpicking to add it in.
I’m pleased with how both pairs turned out and they’ve been put to good use over the last few weeks, a highly recommended tutorial if you’re looking for one.
