I had every intention of making these as Christmas presents, but, alas, I did not get around to. BUT, thanks to my hairbrained idea to make something EVERY day, I have managed to finally make these darling Oven Mits & Potholders. Read on for the How-To and for details on my GIVEAWAY!
I started with these very plain mits and potholders that I found at Ikea. Mits: $1 each, potholders: $0.50 each.
For supplies, I used scrap fabric from last year’s Easter dress, two buttons I found in my stash ($1 each), needle and thread. For the ruffle version, you will need a sewing machine. If you don’t know how to sew…I know someone who can help you with that!
For the button pair, I just chose where I wanted the button and sewed it on. It took me less than 5 minutes. Awesome.
For the Ruffled pair, I made the ruffles, attached them with my machine and then hand sewed a covered button in the center. This pair took about 15 minutes.
I am just loving these little sets….perfect for yourself, hostess gifts, housewarming gifts, birthdays, weddings, etc. And SO SO SO ridiculously CHEAP…oh, I am salivating here. I gotta get myself in the kitchen but what to make? I’ve already made something today!
AND NOW FOR THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT….
I”m going to do a GIVEAWAY this week. Leave me a comment about something that you are making This Week. I will randomly choose a winner on Friday from all the comments. The winner can pick the Four Leaf Clover Ring OR either oven set! Happy DIYing!
