Thank you Jinjeet Phoenix and RockstarMom!

RockstarMom - that's why I leave the Insulbrite exposed on one side of all my stuff; to encourage the recipients to actually use them.  I mean inevitably you're going to get red sauce on everything, right? So hopefully having one undecorated side will help keep one side unstained.

Thanks, random_awesome!  I used Insulbrite which is heat resistant by design.  They recommend an extra layer of cotton batting for oven mitts, but I haven't always done that and it hasn't been an issue that I've heard of.  For lifing out of the oven and onto the stove top or trivet or wrapping around a pan handle and taking to the sink they seem fine, but better safe than sorry is probably a good idea.

Thanks and congrats on your new apartment green r my tear$!  I didn't use a purchased pattern.  I'd made a pattern for these (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=237026.msg2598923#msg2598923) based on an Ikea mitt and just used the "palm" part (an oval) for this and then kind of winged it on the top "pocket" parts, using the same pattern part for the curved side.  I'd say they're a little big for my hand, which are long, but narrow), but since they are for a guy who's tall I thought bigger was okay.
