Red scraps

My friend wanted me to make her some double ended oven mitts for her to give as gifts... These are my favourites. I love using them as they keep my hands and arms safe. But I enjoy making them out of my scraps even more.

She wanted RED...
I tipped out my scraps of fabrics. And wadding too..
I'm not the neatest of storage people. I don't like ironing until I'm ready to use it. I love playing with the little bits...

 All my scraps were sewn to wadding, just like QAYG. I kept sewing until the pieces were long strips and pocket size. Then I trimmed them to correct size..
 And they are finished. I am so happy with them...

  1. Those are brilliant, Jo. Did you use double batting in the 'hand' part of the ovengloves?
