Measurements for my Double Ended Oven Mitt

There have been quite a few enquiries to the size of my mitts.
Here is an overall description of what I have done.

  1. I cut a backing, wadding & patterned piece of fabric 31" * 7.5", 
  2. I added an extra piece of INSULBRITE wadding ( 7.5" * 8.5" ) in the ends for protection.  
  3. Then I layered and quilted it. Trimmed it to 7" * 30".
  4. TO MAKE POCKETS
  5. Cut 2 * patterned fabrics & backing pieces measuring 7" * 8"
  6. Cut 3 binding strips at 7" * 2.5" wide. Attach to 2 top of pockets. 
  7. With the 3rd make a loop and attach to centre of one side of the long quilted piece.
  8. Layer pockets on each end of the long quilted piece. 
  9. Cut each end in a curve shape
  10. Make 80" of BIAS binding @ 2.5" and attach to oven mitt.
ALL DONE.
Hope these are easy enough to understand.

You can use up odd block, scraps or just one fabric for pockets and main piece.
