diy project: sew bettie oven mitt

today’s first diy project comes from cara and mark at sew bettie. we saw their before & after makeover project last week but this week we’re getting a little glimpse into their crafty side. this morning they’re sharing a detailed tutorial for a basic oven mitt that can be customized any way you like (stay tuned for a pre-made oven mitt roundup on friday). the basic pattern is simple but cara wanted to add that she likes her oven mitts to fit snuggly, so if this pattern seems like it will be too small to fit your hand, just use a copy machine to increase the size of the pattern (to 120%). so, ready to get started? grab yourself a thick, quilted fabric (make sure it’s thick enough to be heat-resistant, we don’t want anyone to get burned) and download the instructions right here! it’s a large file so it may take a second to load- just a heads up. thanks again to mark and cara at sew bettie for sharing this great pattern project.

if you’re looking for more great ready-to-download diy projects mark and cara sell several different pattern projects for $5 each on their etsy shop right here. my favs? their mailbag pattern and tutorial and apron tutorial/pattern.

[stay tuned for two more diy projects today at 12pm and 1:30 pm]

I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you.

I did get this etsuko fuyura fabric (good call Grace!) at Unfortunately, they don’t have this particular print anymore and I haven’t been able to find it anywhere else. If someone finds it, I’d love to know where!

I can’t look at that oven mitt without thinking of my home State of Michigan. :) Maybe someone can find some fabric that looks like a vintage map and make one for me?


Oh no! The link to the pdf no longer works and is a dead link.
