pretend and play restaurant set: oven mitts and pot holders

**Two days left to enter to win the rock and roll earrings.  Click here to find out how to enter.**

Pot holders and oven mitts don't really need a tutorial . . . and yet, I'm doing one anyway.  It's a disease! 

The pretend and play restaurant set is well underway! 

We've seen:

Now we have coordinating oven mitts and pot holders.

Here's what you need:
-coordinating fabric

Here's what you do for the oven mitt:
1)  Trace child's hand and use the traced hand to make sure the oven mitt will be larger than the hand.  Or trace around a child's mitten adding a few inches all the way around perimeter for the oven mitt pattern.  Leave an extra 1/2 inch on the bottom of the non-fleece mitt shape.  Cut out two mitt shapes for each oven mitt. 

2)  Cut the bottom of the fleece mitt shape with pinking shears.

3)  Pin the two mitt shapes right sides together just at one side.  

4)  Double fold the end of the non-fleece mitt shape and pin.  With a zigzag stitch sew a hem down the bottom of the mitts pinned together.

5)  Pin the mitt shapes right sides together all the way around.  Sew.  Clip rounded corners and turn.

Oven mitts done! 

The pot holders are pretty self-explanatory . . . so let me explain them ;).  Cut out two squares.  Pin them right sides together.  Sew around leaving a turning hole.  Clip corners.  Turn.  Top stitch around edge closing up turning hole in the process. 

Craft on!
