Free oven mitt sewing pattern

This free oven mitts sewing pattern was inspired by our new KitchenAid range. Bye bye cheap-o Frigidaire …momma’s got a double oven now with a griddle on top. And it was just begging for some nice oven mitts.

I made this free oven mitts sewing pattern shape by eyeballing oven mitts for sale online and then drawing around my hand. I like the oven mitt shape overall but be advised that it’s size medium-ish – if you want more room just increase the size a bit on a copier.

I didn’t want the quilting to show on the outside of the mitts – I wanted the smoother fabric look on the outside – so I quilted the inside first and then on the outside fabric. I even went to the trouble of pattern matching the stripes on the side seams like so…

It’s easy – I’ll show you how. The oven mitts pattern pairs well with my apron with built-in potholders and secret iPhone pocket free pattern. Now what to bake first?? Shane is voting for this.

How to sew a DIY oven mitt:
Print my free oven mitt sewing pattern template – or just eyeball some oven mitts for sale online and trace about 2-3 inches around your own hand like I did. Cut out and tape the pattern together – it was too big to fit onto one letter-sized sheet.

Cut out your pattern pieces. If you’re using a pattern like I did, here’s an easy way to pattern match the stripes. Place one cut piece face down onto your fabric, right sides together. Trace around that and the stripes should line up when you sew the seams. Easy peasy, yes?

For each oven mitt cut out these pieces:

NOTE: You probably could flip it and cut 4 pieces of batting and 2 pieces of fleece if you want to make it extra heatproof. I was down to my last bit of Insul-Bright Insulated Batting so I did it this way and it feels pretty heatproof to me. Also, quilting shrinks up the batting and fleece a little bit so if you want to get extra points, cut the batting and fleece a smidge bigger than the fabric piece.

Layer two (2) pieces of fleece on top of one (1) piece of Insul-Bright Insulated Batting and pin (I sewed all these in the evening so sorry for the crappy shots).

Quilt as you please. I stitched lines across the stack, turning when I reached the sides and sewing about 10-15 stitches close to the edge, then turning the oven mitt and sewing back the other direction. Repeat for the other set.

Place one (1) piece of fabric on top of the batting/fleece quilted inside. Now like I said earlier, quilting is going to shrink up the batting/fleece a bit so if you want to be extra perfect then cut your batting/fleece pieces a bit bigger than the fabric.

Flip the stack over and pin – I flip the fabric onto the bottom because if you cut the pieces the same size, the fabric is going to be slightly bigger so it’s easier to sew from the fleece side. Sew across the bottom of the mitt and STOP. Repeat with the other set.

Stack the two sets together, right-sides together. Your bottoms will already be sewn and the sides will be completely open. Pin it and sew around the mitt – remembering not to sew the bottom shut. Now if you want to finish the edges you could do a tight zigzag here or fight with your serger to get around the perimeter. I decided to just trim up the seams and go with it as is – the fleece isn’t going to ravel.

Stitch a line of reinforcement in the thumb dip area. Snip the fabric down to the threads. Ignore all my hangnails – desperately need a manicure.

Turn the mitt inside out and give yourself a little preview.

Open up your binding tape. Turn down one edge about 1/4″ and pin to the inside of your fleece oven mitt, right sides together.

Sew your binding tape onto the bottom of the oven mitt. When you get to the end, let your binding tape overlap a bit before cutting it.

Turn your binding tape to the outside and pin. Now I used pretty thin bias tape – you could probably use wider and this whole step will be a little easier.

Stitch down your biding tape close to the edge, removing pins as you go.

    In fact her explains almost literally how to read a girl’s head.
    Most of the time the client is not aware of these
    habits, and it requires some real work on my part just to convince them that they exist
    in the first place. Not really for starters plus a little bit expensive.

    Feel free to visit my web page: christian hudson

  2. Dominique Says:

    What kind of fleece did you use? Was it thick or thin? Was is made of polyester?

  3. Kathy Beymer Says:

    Hi Janey, are you having trouble downloading it or printing it? I can email you the pattern if you need download help. For printing, just make sure that the “print to fit” box is unchecked …or else the pattern may print too small. Just let me know what you need!

    Thanks alot i used the step by step pattern and it was very helpful

  7. Kathy Beymer Says:

    Thanks. Our carbon monoxide detector went off and the four nice burly Chicago firemen who arrived were able to track it to our old oven. Wish it would have happened years ago! This thing is a dream.

  8. Heather Crosby Says:

    You are brilliant. I love these! Congrats in the new range, too.

  9. Sue Says:

    Ooooh, I like your new range. I have never made oven mitts before but have always wanted to. I like your tutorial. It is very easy to follow and I love all the pics.
    I would love for you to pop by my blog sometime and say hi!
