Glowing yellows

Scrap happy Saturday working with yellows.
EDITED... I have had a lot of queries of how I make these... go over to this post to see the measurements.     Double ended oven mitts
The extra wadding I add in for the hands protection is a square of insulbrite wadding...

Last weekend I started sorting out my yellows tub and wondering what could I do you use it up. I wanted a project that could be finished and not just added to a pile of UFO's...

Start making some crumb block fabric on wadding...

Decision has been made. Mobile phone holders and double needle oven mitts.

I love using these oven mitts. I find that as soon as I make them they disappear for presents...

Do I add the flowers for a bit of decoration... mmmm I'll think on it. With or without ????



These are the rubbish scraps going in the bin. All my crumbs are used up...

  4. Great ideas! I need new pot-holders or oven mitts. Will have to look into using up some of my scraps like this.

  5. What a great way to use up the crumb blocks. Love the floral touches on the oven mitts. The mobile phone holder is great too. Might have to make a few of those to protect the face of the phone in my purse.

  6. Your projects are great - I really like those oven mitts, what a great gift idea. The flower buttons add a special touch I think as well.

  13. WOW! What an impressive use of scraps! I'll have to remember those oven mitts. And I never thought of sewing scraps to batting...I usually just sew crumbs together but I sure like your idea.

  14. Wow, you are just so talented when it comes to sewing up things.... and quick!! I'm intrigued with the mobile phone holders and that ring you have in there

  15. Also meant to ask if there is an easy way of sewing "crumbs" together ? do you cut them all to a size or how best to put all those odd pieces together? I got in such a mess the last time I tried to do that and it took me a whole day!! I'm beginning to think sewing is not my forte lol

  16. Fantastic! Love both! You are so clever Jo x

  17. Great use of the scraps Jo, do you put special wadding in the pot holders? How do you get the crumbs to work out? They both look amazing.

  18. what lovely oven gloves far to nice to dirty I bet most people hang them on the wall as a showpiece. What a good idea to sew them directly to the wadding will bear that in mind when I next play with my scraps. I see someone has already asked for a tutorial fingers crossed you do one. Phone holders great too
