I've had an idea rattling around in my head for a while. Make oven mitts! Nothing revolutionary, just oven mitts. However, I only have one in my kitchen (and I refused to buy more thinking I could make some!), the food encrusted one pictured below. Needs a wash. Soooo, I took a pattern off it by tracing around it on a piece of craft paper.
The main reason I was finally motivated to make these is some of the men in my life are getting them for Christmas.
