I love buying fabric, yarns and all sorts of interesting craft items. Pattern making gives me an excuse to keep adding to my stash, as I "need" a good selection to make my samples with. When I'm not making patterns of one kind or another, I enjoy weaving, drawing and writing, and playing with my dogs. Occasionally I like to make a large batch of a few of my favorite pattern items and take them to a few local craft fairs. Always fun to meet new people!View all patterns by designer (48) »
These oven mitts and potholders work up so fast you won't believe it. Even if you've never done any quilting, you can make these and hardly know you're quilting! Quilt-as-you-go strips work up fast, are nice and cushiony and look great. Two styles of oven mitt are included - a two-sided mitten style, and a center thumb style. Seems like most people have a definite preference for one or the other. Potholders with straight or diagonal stripes are included in the pattern.
Grab a few coordinating fat quarters and have some fun with these. They're quick to make, handy to have and are an easy, thoughtful gift to make for others. Use 100% cotton fabric and batting when making these mitts and potholders - you don't want any materials that might melt. They make great gifts.
Pattern has complete easy to follow, step-by-step illustrated instructions, so all you'll need is basic sewing and quilting skills. You'll need cotton fabric, cotton batting, and thread and you're ready to go.
