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".
  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.
Hope these are easy enough to understand.

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

Thank you Jo - I was wondering how they were made. I just might make a few for Christmas presents.
