Heart Microwave Mitts
Heart shaped microwave mittens made from quilted scraps.
Approximate Time: An hour or less
- two scraps of quilted fabric each, about 9 inches square
- bias tape to match
- ribbon for bow
- paper for templates
- sewing machine and supplies
- Make a template for a heart by doubling over a scrap of paper. The heart should be about 8 inches across at the widest part, or wider if you have large hands. Using this template as a pattern, make another template for half a heart, tapering the piece as shown in the photo.
- For each mitt, cut out one full size heart. With right sides of fabric facing, cut out two half hearts.
- Bind the straight edges of the half hearts with bias tape. If you have fancy stitches on your sewing machine, you can sew over the bias tape using a contrasting color, or just leave plain.
- With the wrong side of the half hearts to the right side of the full heart, machine baste all around the edges. Trim very close to basting.
- Apply bias tape around the outside edge of heart. Sew a fancy stitch around outside if desired.
- Attach a loop for hanging at the back and tack a ribbon bow at center top of heart.
