Here’s another quick project from a Viking class earlier this week. It’s a two-hand pot holder mitt. Frankly, I’m not entirely sure how well it would work out (especially since it’s overkill for anything we can fit into our toaster oven, being oven-less and all). I keep thinking I’d manage to burn myself somehow, or drop the pan, or something. It could make an interesting trivet, perhaps?
But, it was nice to get out and sew with some other ladies for an evening.
I’d forgotten I was on the waiting list for the class, so I hadn’t planned out fabrics or anything. I got a call rather last minute, so I ran home after work, grabbed what coordinating fabrics I could, and headed to class. The leftover strips are from the Designer Roll I used on the recent baby quilt and the background fabric is the closest coordinating fabric I had a half-yard of. Luckily, I had a strip of Insulbright the right width left over from some project I don’t even recall at the moment. It doesn’t match any of my decor. I think it may be destined for the club’s quilt show’s boutique next year.
Oh my, did the free motion part send everyone into a tizzy. Most of them were new to the concept (even the long-arm quilter in the class was scared of doing it on a domestic!) I tried to explain to them that mine only looked ok because that is the absolute one design I actually know how to FMQ, since it’s what I do on anything that I FMQ, but I don’t think they believed me.
Have you ever used one of these double-handed mitts? Do you like them?
