Who needs a Dog Mitt… I mean Oven Mitt :)

Christmas-oven-mitt-2

I mean, c’mon!  We all have THAT friend who is dog crazy!  You know, the one who hangs signs in their house about how their dog lives here, not you.  The ones who dress their dogs, kiss their dogs on the lips, let their dog have a lick of their ice cream… you know who I’m talking about.

We love them anyway!  (Just a little side note.. I might BE THAT FRIEND).  Well, now you have a mission for your dog lovin’ crazy friend.  Make them a matching oven mitt, hot pad out of this cute Fabric Editions Fabric from Walmart.. and it’s only $0.97!  All you need is two fat quarters for the oven mitt and you can use the left overs to create this reversible matching hot pad.

How fun!

The fur… I die!  You know you want to make this just so you can have a fur cuffed oven mitt on Christmas morning.  Want to know how to make the oven mitt?  It was one of my first maker sewing projects.  I’ve got a tutorial and a FREE pattern ready for you.  Don’t have a maker, cut out the pattern in cardstock and then use that for your pattern!  I didn’t use the fur in this video, but you can either glue it on, or sew it on.  I found the strip of fur at Joanns in the craft aisle (over by the bag making supplies, feathers, etc).

Create your own Oven Mitt with the Cricut Maker

I’m back with yet another quick and easy project with the Cricut Maker.

Oven Mit (3 of 4)

It’s a really great project to try with your Cricut Maker.

The Maker cuts your pattern precisely, which means all of the pieces come together perfectly.

I used cotton on this project, but flannel makes a really quite oven mitt for the winter months.

I just love how the accent trim.  The little pop of pink really makes a statement.

Oven Mit (4 of 4)Don’t quilt?  Don’t worry, I don’t either. I simply sewed random lines throughout the front and back panels.  You can make your own unique “quilting pattern” by following the lines of the fabric, sewing stripes, diagonals or any pattern you choose.

I think pairing this with the Skillet Handle Pot Holder in matching fabrics would make a super cute and super fun gift!

So, are you ready to make your own DIY Oven Mitt?  Here’s my video tutorial and a free SVG pattern.  Enjoy!

Skillet Handle Pot Holders / Hot Pads with the Cricut Maker

Do you have a cast iron skillet?  Are we alone in loving a well seasoned cast iron skillet and the beauty that lies within?  I’m pretty sure there are more of you out there.  If you have ever used a cast iron skillet, you know the handle gets super hot!  Enter the Skillet Handle Pot Holder. SKillet Pot Holder (1 of 3) I love this! It makes it super easy to grab that skillet from the oven.  Am I the only one who suddenly smells bacon?

Now, I have to remind you – do not put the skillet in the oven with the handle holder on it.  It will catch fire and burn.  Ask me how I know 😦

Would you be a bit surprised if I told you I made these with the Cricut Maker?  That’s right.  I created a pattern in Design Space (the software that is free to use with any Cricut Explore or Maker machine), then I added the fabric to the mat and ba da bing, ba da boom…. no more scorched hands.SKillet Pot Holder (1 of 1)

I created a step-by-step video tutorial for you.  Not only will you learn how to create a pattern from basic shapes, but you’ll learn how to cut and assemble and make your own Skillet Handle Pot Holders.  I don’t want anyone to burn their hands on a hot skillet ever again.  Here’s the video!  Oh, and if you make them, be sure and tag me on Facebook, Instagram or leave a comment below.  I get so excited when I see someone make something from one of the videos.
