oven mitts (affiliate link). I bought these off of amazon and was really impressed. You'll also need some single fold bias binding- store bought or handmade! This was a bit of binding that I had left from the Crinkle Quilt. You'll need roughly 4 times the width of one of the mitts, with about 4-5 inches extra for wiggle room.
magic stitch. Just a tip-- the mitt was too thick to turn inside out, so I just turned up the cuff to make it easier to sew.
I have the best mom in the world, so I'm ashamed to say that this little project was finished in 10 minutes on mother's day morning. (Mommy, next year, you'll be getting a gift certificate to the spa!) But since it's so quick and easy, it would make a wonderful gift for a house warming present --especially paired with a baked treat. Or you can just dress up your own worn out mitts!
