I made this for Christmas gifts for all my family and friends last year and they loved them. If you start now and work on it in your spare time, you can be done with it way before Christmas.
You can get a pattern at your fabric store for less then $2.00. The pattern will tell you how much material and what other items you need to make the oven mitts and hot pads.
I made 16 sets of oven mitts and 16 sets of hot pads in 2 weeks. If I had thought of it sooner, I would have been able to take my time making them. This year, everyone is getting Christmas aprons and place mats.
1 and 1/2 hours
Cut your material pieces out from your pattern, cut your pieces out for your batting.
This was a really fun and easy project and once you have made one it is much easier and does not take any time to make more.

Well done these are lovely, last Christmas I made little sets of 3" square set of 4 hand warmers filled with rice, made with left over fabric, just another quick and useful gift.
That sounds like a good idea. My husband is always complaining about his hands and feet being cold. I just need to figure out how to make him something for his feet.
