This may already have been covered elsewhere, and if so, I do apologize... But I'm in need of some SERIOUS help here...
So... I have this oven mitt pattern, which is great. Simple, easy, right? Errrmmm... sort of?
I'm running into a few problems... I think I know most of the issues, but I'd love some advice on how to handle them...
Before I get to the issue, here's what I'm using:
-100% cotton fabric for both the outside and inside of the mitt
-Warm tater batting
How I have layered them:
-cotton inside of mitt
-layer of insul-bright
-layer of warm tater
-cotton outside of mitt
Now to the issues I'm having...
1. I used quilting stay spray to stick the layers together... I *think* this is part of where this issue is stemming from. My sewing machine is not picking up the bobbin thread constantly down below. If I sew the same layers together and DON'T use the spray, I don't have the issue... So, I will be trying with just a BUNCH of pins and crossed toes.
2. When I turn the mitt right side out, since it has 8 layers, the inset where the thumb webbing would be does not want to turn... And the thumb itself doesn't want to pop out...
I've honestly never done anything like this before. I quilt, and I sew clothing, but this is an entirely new animal that I have yet to truly fathom. So, any help would be greatly appreciated!
