Quilted Oven Mitt- Video Tutorial

quilted oven mitt tutorial

Here’s another quick and easy gift idea! Make these quilted oven mitts for the host of your next holiday party or stuff one in a loved one’s stocking. They are easy to make and a fun beginner project. Oven mitts are also practical gifts that I think anyone who cooks would love to receive.  These mitts are fully lined and include a little loop for hanging if you need it. In my free video tutorial I walk you through every single step and I’m confident that after you watch my video tutorial you will want to make a ton of these for gifts and to keep for yourself. There are so many great fabrics to choose from for a project like this that you could really jazz it up, make it feminine or masculine, etc.

For this project you will need:

• A pattern/template. You can draw your own, trace around an old mitt or you can download the FREE oven mitt PDF pattern I created for you right here: quilted oven mitt pattern by Crafty Gemini

• Cotton fabric for the outside, lining and the hanging loop. (2 fat quarters would be plenty.)

• Insulated batting. I used this kind. (affiliate link)

• Basic sewing supplies & sewing machine:

• The mini-iron I use: http://amzn.to/1zJkiOz (affiliate link)

• Insul-Brite product: http://amzn.to/1Ag0jHY (affiliate link)

• The clips I used in tutorial: http://amzn.to/11UfQkO (affiliate link)

• Pinking shears: http://amzn.to/1IuiLBM (affiliate link)

I did some random quilting lines on mine and I really like the way it looks. Feel free to do whatever type of quilting you prefer on yours.

If you give this project a try let me know and post pics to my Facebook page. I’d love to see the different fabrics you use!

    I’m making an apron for my mom for Christmas. Now I’m going to have to make a matching oven mitt!! Thanks! 🙂

  • Bea Ramirez

    The video for the mittens freezes when you are about to take the fabric to the machine to sew the mitten. I’ve tried twice to see it but it still freezes.

  • Evita

    Vanessa, you are awesome! I love your videos (I subscribe to your channel). I have made about 20 of the envelope pillow covers- what a great tutorial!! Going to try the oven mitts next. Someday when I have time I’m going to sit all day and watch all your vids! Thanks so much for your great projects and great directions! And your kids are adorable! Have a wonderful Christmas!!

  • Kathy

    I love the oven mitts and what a great way to use fat quarters! I’ve got some Christmassy fabric in my stash so still have time to whip up a couple of gifts.Thanks for the tutorial. 🙂

  • Andrea

    I’m making hot pads with the insul-bright you linked to but I’m having a ton of problems with my quilt sandwich shifting. Any ideas on how to keep it from shifting to much? I’ve tried pinning the sandwich but then the top layer just stretches. I’m using pieced cotton on the top and solid cotton on the bottom.

    • Vanessa Vargas Wilson

      You may need to use a walking foot on your machine or release the presser foot tension on your machine. If the presser foot is biting down too hard on your fabric it will cause the fabric to move as it goes through the machine.

      • Andrea

        A walking foot! I’ve been a self taught sewing person for a decade and even made a couple of quilts without ever breaking out my walking foot…. it’s still in the plastic. I’m feeling all kinds of embarrassed. Thank you! A whole new world of high loft has opened to me.

  • Ginger

    Just made my first pot holder. It was so easy. Love your tutorials….they are so easy to follow. I am a beginner at sewing and really enjoy following your tutorials. Thanks so much.

    Hi Vanessa,

    Just like your followers I love your videos but most of all I admire your natural enthusiasm( which also happens to be contagious). I would like to make a recommendation that perhaps the mittens can be a little longer for those who burn their forearms when reaching far back into the oven. I will be making mine longer for this reason and if and when I do I will try to send you a picture. Best of luck in all your endeavors. Sandy

  • Sandi

    i made some hot pads and oven mitts using insulbrite but for some reason when you pick up something hot the heat comes right through. it’s like picking it up with just a piece of cloth. what did i do wrong???

    • Diane

      I had the same problem with my oven mitts. Is there a special kind of fabric for the lining that we need to use so that it won’t burn your hands? Thanks

    • christine

      You may have had the insulbright turned the wrong way so its reflecting towards your hands and not away

    • Annie

      You need to use a layer of cotton batting as well. Indecently there is no right or wrong side to inulbrite. Read the packaging. Hope this helps.

  • Annie

    I like you tutorial for the oven MIT’s but there is just one problem, you use the insul brite alone but the package tells you to use at least one layer of cotton backing to absorb condensation. I also think it makes it extra heat resistant and secure.

    Hi Vanessa,
    I enjoy your tutorials so much!!! Y our a great inspiration. For the oven mitt what is the seam allowance when stitching up the mitt?
    God bless!Lori Jo
