Somehow I’ve collected quite a few cute oven mitts, most of them with kitties printed on them. I want to love them, but the oven mitts I actually use are a rather plain pair that reach longer down my arms. I feel safer pulling a cookie tray out of the oven when I’ve got the extra coverage on my arms. Deby from So Sew Easy shares a free pattern for making a pair of long arm oven mitts. You can have the cute fabric AND the better coverage. Make a pair for yourself, and maybe make up a few extra to give as gifts. Go to So Sew Easy for the pattern and tutorial.
