Catching up!

Johanna had asked me to sew some oven mitts for her aunt way before Christmas but I was so busy with my exams that we agreed she'd give her a gift certificate first. Now the mitts are done.Not without the usual problems though:
Since last week I'm the proud owner of a wonderful serger but the two of us still have some difficulties with each other and probably will need some more time to bond. That didn't stop me from using it when sewing the mitts. To keep it short: I cut a thumb off... or almost off. Very smart indeed. I had to start all over because I didn't have enough fabric left for a third mitt. Not one of my favorite activities... The good thing was that I could make some adjustments to the pattern, because I found them a bit to tight at the arms first.
I used the pattern from "simple sewing" by Lotta Jansdotter. A great book! Lots of very inspiring pictures and nice projects.So the mitts are done and I actually finished a couple of other things too. Doll clothes for Hilde's doll, but I can't show them yet...

very stylish :)
did you put any "isolation" in between the fabrics? (to make sure they don't burn your hands) if you did, may i ask what?

Thank you!

I used Thermolam 272 made by Vlieseline. It works really well for pot holders or oven mitts. I usually use two layers of it and that definitely protects your hands from the heat!
