It’s always difficult to think of something to make as a mans gift, we are having Christmas dinner at my brothers house this year and he will be doing the cooking (Goose is on the menu I think!) so his present is going to be these oven gloves so that he doesn’t burn himself
The fabric I used is Michael Millers Ketchup and Mustard
Firts of all I made a pattern using an old pair of oven gloves, basically it is a rectangle 37cm by 20cm with rounded edges
Place this on the fold of the fabric and cut 2 pieces, then cut out one piece of wadding
Then fold the pattern so that you have 20cm by 20cm for the hand pieces, you can see where I have marked this on the pattern. You need to cut out 4 pieces in the fabric and 2 in the wadding.
Do the hand pieces first, sandwich the wadding in the middle of 2 pieces of fabric, right sides facing up, pin and baste these together
Trim the edges
Next attach the bias binding to the straight edge
Do the same to the main part of the oven gloves, so sandwich together with the wadding, baste and trim, then pin each hand piece to the ends
Finally, pin and sew the bias binding all the way around the edge of the oven gloves
Next week I am going to be making an apron for my sister in law, its going to have to be a frilly one!
