More oven mitts!  This time from a male friend who is his family's cook.  He's a finish carpenter and a big fan of all kinds of guitar music.  I used a few new-to-me things on the guitar one.  First I bothered to match the print on the bottom and top pieces and was mostly successful and second I made my own bias tape and used it to bind the edges.  Also I sewed that on in 2 steps, one by machine, the other by hand and it's the first time I'm pleased with how my bias tape looks!  That's why it's the first pic!


The back side and the side that's hand sewn.  I think I'm going to need to get a leather thimble for my thumb!

Front of guitar model:


Action shot (minus hot pan):

And yes, that's the sleeve of one of my bathrobes in the shot.  I can't be the only one who starts craftin before she gets dressed on the weekends.  Right? Undecided

Wood grain model:

Store bought bias tape on this one.  Ho-hum.

These are great!
It's impossible to find good oven mitts in a store, this is a much better idea.

Thanks mymomma and opheliapoe!  I'm kind of going crazy making these types of things lately and I don't even cook!  Giving a lot away, though.  It's a fun way to use a little piece of a fun print and useful, too.

They look great!

These would make great gifts for any guys...even if they don't cook on the stove, almost all use an oven (to heat up TV dinners or bake chicken nuggets) or microwave and can use a pair of hot pads.  Personalizing them by using fabric that corresponds with their (in this case, your male friend's) interests and having made them yourself made them extra special.

Exactly - we all heat up something in some way for eating even if it's from the toaster oven - which is why I made this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210039.msg2251032#msg2251032

T your stuff always rocks! I need to learn to make potholders! I have some really nice ones from a swap, but I am afraid to use them and mess them up!
