Jeans to oven mitts


The pocket of some neglected jeans (remember, don’t buy bargain jeans any more) is simply layered face up a piece of canvas face down then  insulbright  and felt – I didn’t have any batting to hand. I tucked in a loop of cord for hanging – and sewed around using my walking foot, leaving a gap for turning.


After turning I hand stitched the gap as the bulk was too much for the machine and voila! The pocket works on the oven glove better than it ever did on my jeans.


So so simple that I made a smaller version with the other front pocket immediately.


now to make the two back pockets into a double mitt creation!
