Quilted Oven Mitt Pattern

When my husband and I first got engaged and went to put together our wedding registry, we started seeing a trend.  Everything we were choosing was green.  I mean everything.

The towels, curtains, furniture, appliances.  We both were really drawn to the color green.  (Yes, it does happen to be both our favorite color.)

    We started to realize if we didn't want our home to be so monochromatic, we'd have to pick some different colors.  That is when we decided to go for red in the kitchen.  

    Red is a warm color and promotes hunger.  That's why so many food companies and restaurants use red in their advertising.  

    Fast forward 15+ years later and my kitchen still has quite a bit of red going on.  However, I really do love greens and blues and wanted to start switching things up a little.

    To start, I wanted to change up the hot pad and oven mitt I've had since we got married.  That is how this free oven mitt pattern came along.

    My need for a little change in my kitchen results in you getting a freebie for your own kitchen sewing.  Plus, this project is quick and makes really great gifts.

    Or if you have your own boutique or craft fair booth, people really love pretty oven mitts for each season or holiday themed items.

    Create your own kitchen accessories like this easy oven mitt pattern.

    Step 3
    Stitch some diagonal lines through the three layers.  Each line should be about 1-1.5" apart.  Start the lines in the middle of the oven mitt and stitch out.  This will help keep everything lined up a bit better.

    Repeat step 2-3 with the opposite side of the oven mitt.
