Heatproof, but still Flammable…

Oven Mitt

This is the latest addition to my kitchen! After accidentally causing the demise of my favorite pair of potholders by fire, I needed a replacement.

Lotta’s instructions call for wool batting, but I used the same cotton batting and Insul-Bright batting sandwich that I’ve been using for my potholders. It was a fun and quick project for a rainy afternoon. I liked machine quilting the swirl. Now to just keep it away from open flames…
