oven mitt kid sized and some sweetness…

so I was thinking (I know..it’s a rarity) that I wanted something to go with my pink ruffly aprons….

i started with an old baby blanket…it was doubly lined….two fleeces.
and I just cut out a basic shape..(doubled over)

each of these hands are 4 layers of fabric
see all the layers? I wanted it pretty padded….and didn’t want to worry about batting….
so each side of the oven mitt has 4 layers each…(8 layers all together)
then I took each 4 layers of fabric…and crisscrossed some stitches….. (this could be skipped…)

before I sewed the two sides together…I cut a little strip of pink fabric

and made a binding along bottom…

sewed that on…then put the right sides together 
and sew all the way around…

trimmed it up a little…and cut down between the thumb

then turn it right side out (by using flannel…I don’t have to finish that edge. score 4 points for me..)
(but if you need to finish it…you just go right ahead and do that.)
now..i’m a hot gluer. I mean..I can sew..but if there is a project that can either be sewed or hot glued…i’m all over the hot glue….so I decided to hot glue some felt sweets….
the one…”process ” picture….

the gift…..

(and if you really want a felt treat for your eyes…go here to pinterest)
i know right. adore!!!!
