Step 1 - Cut the pattern out of the fabric:
Cut 2 outer fabric
Cut 2 lining fabric
Cut 2 large squares of insulbrite
Cut 2 large squares of batting
Step 2- Using a marking tool, draw diagonal crosshatch lines in both directions on the fabric for quilting.
Step 3 - Make a quilt sandwich by placing a layer of batting, then a layer insulbrite, and finally the fabric oven mitt pattern piece on top. Baste with basting pins to hold it in place.
Step 4 - Quilt both sides of the oven mitt by sewing down the diagonal lines you previously marked.
Step 5 -If using a frixon pen for marking, iron to erase the lines.
Step 6 - Trim away the layers of batting from around the oven mitt.
Step 7 - Place the quilted oven mitt top and bottom outside pieces right sides together and pin or clip in place.
Step 8 - Place the oven mitt top and bottom lining pieces right sides together and pin or clip in place.
Step 9 - Sew together outside layers using ¼ seam allowance leaving the bottom open. Remember to backstitch in place at the beginning and the end.
Step 10 - Sew around the edge of the lining pieces using 1/4 in seam allowance, leaving the bottom open.
Step 11 - Turn the outside layer of the oven mitt right side out. Place the lining piece inside the oven mitt outside layer.
Step 12 - Open the bias binding up and fold it around the raw edges of the opening of the oven mitt. Both the raw edges of the inside lining and outside layers will be inside the binding fold.
Step 13 - Overlap the ends by an inch. Fold the raw edge of the overlapping edge of the bias binding over to contain the raw edge and pin it in place.
Step 14 - Cut a binding strip 6 inches long. Topstitch along the edge to close the fold.
Step 15 - Fold the strip in half and insert it under the back edge of the binding. Pin or clip in place.
Step 16 - Topstitch along the bottom edge of the binding to sew the binding in place around the raw edges of the oven mitt. And you are all done.
