This tutorial will show you how to make a pair of double oven gloves using a simple oven glove template; you can easily adjust the size to suit your hands if you need the oven mitts to be smaller or larger. Oven gloves are practical, but they can also be fun! You can use different fabrics on the front and the back, and make quilted double oven gloves like we’ve done here, and add contrast piping to give them that extra special look if yuy like.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Pen/tailors chalk
- Bias Binding
- Heat resistant wadding
- Oven glove template
Before you start
You will need to print and cut out the oven glove template onto size A4 paper.
Ensure that you choose a suitable fabric for oven gloves, we would suggest using a heavier weight cotton; cotton drill or denim would be practical or for something prettier choose from some of our cotton curtain fabrics.
If you wish you can use contrasting fabric for the pockets or stitch a pretty, fun binding along the top edge of pocket to embellish it.
If you are not sure how to apply bias binding read our tutorial to get that perfect finish every time.
Cut 2 rectangles of fabric 16cm x 80cm. Place the template on each end, mark curve and cut to shape. Repeat this with 1 piece of heat resistant wadding.
For the pockets place your template on a piece of fabric, draw around and cut out. Repeat this 3 more times to give you 4 pieces. Cut 2 matching pieces of wadding.
Quilting your oven glove
Place your 2 shaped rectangles of fabric together with the wadding sandwiched in between, pin or clip together. If you are quilting you will now need to mark your lines on one side. We suggest using a cross hatch pattern with lines 2 inches apart. Stitch through all layers along the lines to complete the quilting.
Make the pockets
Repeat this process with your pocket pieces to make the 2 pockets. Cut a piece of binding slightly longer than the top edge of your pocket. Apply the binding along the top edge of the pockets and stich in place. If you wish to include an embellishment to the pocket do so now.
Place the hand pockets on the long rectangle of fabric, matching rounded edges. Pin or clip together.
Add a hanging loop
Cut a 12cm strip of binding and fold lengthways in half, stich along the open edge to make a hanging loop. fold this in half crossing the edges, place this on top of the oven glove in the centre of one long edge. Ensure that the raw edges of the loop line up with raw edge of the oven glove. Stitch in place.
Apply the bias binding around the edge and stitch in place.
You now have now made a heat resistant oven glove!
