I sandwiched the chilli and cream lining fabrics with Insul Brite insulated batting, then quilted the layers together using a meandering free motion stitch in red cotton thread, before joining the pieces and making the mitt. The internal seams are finished with a tight zig-zag stitch.
The binding is in the same chilli fabric, and I stitched a loop of red webbing so you can hang your chilli oven mitt in your kitchen or near your BBQ. Finally, I sprayed on fabric protector.
Dimensions: Widest point (thumb tip across to opposite side) - 7 in (18 cm); length - 12 in (30 cm)
Fits both a male and female hand (I tested the fit with my husband's hand -- he's 6' 3"). This mitt is also washable.
Made in a smoke-free, pet-free, child-free home.
NOTE: Fabric placement for each mitt may vary slightly from photos.
