Oven mitts were my sewn Christmas gift of choice this year – I made 4 pairs to give as gifts. I made the pattern myself based on a pair of mitts I already own, but I made them slimmer to fit smaller hands. I used a double layer of Insulbrite insulation (I found a single layer wasn’t quite enough, and adding a second layer didn’t increase the bulk too much), canvas for the lining, and quilting cotton for the outside. I also hand-stitched a strip of fleece over the raw edge of the seam between the thumb and the tip of the forefinger because I found that without it the heat leaked through the metallic layer of the insulation. I quilted each side through all layers.
