DIY Oven Mitt

mitt finish

 

My oven mitts are getting pretty scary. I burned myself with one the other day, as the thumb portion is worn through. I could go out and buy one, but I have a bunch of scrap fabric, so why not just make a new oven mitt? I love strawberries, and always wanted a strawberry kitchen. I had leftover fabric with a strawberry print I used, and you might see me wearing a skirt with this fabric as well.

towel heart

I am trying to get more festive with the minor holidays, such as Valentine’s Day. Kids love to celebrate, and I really want to make things special for my little girls.

Addie Jo Skirt Sew-Along

IMG_20140105_201301611

Make a skirt for your little girl! I love to sew, but I loathe mainstream patterns. This Addie Jo pattern by Izzy & Ivy is really not a pattern, but is rather a set of very clear directions. You won’t be cutting out patterns, but simply cutting out fabric according to sizes. I love these instructions go up to size 14, as most boutique patterns do not.

I am not including the measurements, and am writing most of my own details, as not to infringe on copyright. The pattern isn’t expensive, they give you five different skirt styles. I highly recommend you buy this pattern from Izzy & Ivy!

Amy Butler Purse Embroidery

In fact, I was so proud, that right after leaving my sewing room, I made up an errand so I could show off my purse. Katelyn needed a white dress. I mean, she did, but not that minute.

This post is for brand-new sewists for learning purposes, and for experienced sewists to have something to laugh about — my ridiculous misadventures in teaching myself to sew.
