Crate a customised pair of oven gloves to match your kitchen
Oven gloves are one of those things you just can’t live without. How many of you find that they become really dirty after a while but you can’t find the time to wash them as you constantly need them? Mine got into such a state that I needed a spare pair so I made some.

Before you start, decide whether you will quilt your gloves. Quilting often causes the size of your item to shrink a little, sometimes up to 5%. You may want to add a little extra to your seam allowances before cutting to allow for shrinkage. Measure the outside seam, straight seam of gloves and the loop to work out how much bias binding you will need.
Using your current pair as a guide, cut the full length of the gloves in your main fabric (x2), batting, and Insul-bright. Then cut four of gloves in your contrast fabric, if using and two in batting. Don’t forget to add extra seam allowance if quilting.
Create the loop. Cut a length of bias binding long enough to create your desired loop length. Fold the edges together and stitch. Pin in place the loop in the middle of the main glove on the opposite side of the gloves. Fold over the bias binding and pin in place, clipping curves if necessary. Stitch in place.
