jeans to oven mitts …

A quick sew which turned out more rustic than planned so will be used for picking up logs and coal.

I cut around the pockets of some old jeans making four pads from one pair and trimmed batting and a fabric remnant to match.

Making a sandwich with the pockets and fabric right sides out around the batting. I then sewed the raw edge of a strip of denim binding made from the same jeans (see previous post) to  one side of the sandwich then flipped it over and sewed the folded edge to the other side.

The bulk made this a bumpy sew, so next time I will cut a bigger square around pockets and use traditional binding for a neater finish that can grace the kitchen.

Top tip: Although I have run out of insulbright I have worked out that old ironing board covers do just as good a job with less bulk…
