I made this so we wouldn't have to keep reaching for a large oven mitt or a dish towel when using our cast iron (also certain pots). It works quite nicely, and hangs on a little out-of-the-way hook right by the oven.



Its construction is very simple, just a layer of cotton, a layer of special heat-reflecting batting, and a layer of corduroy on the inside, bias tape around the edges.



I hand-sewed everything, because I have a terrible history with sewing bias tape in curves!



I really like how it turned out, and wanted to share! Cheesy

The fabrics are gorgeous!  I like that you have some "water" element to help cool off the fiery-hot pans  Wink

    I've never seen this type of oven mitt before, but it is a great idea.  You did a lovely job making this.  I love the fabric you used.
