When I did my post yesterday about handmade gifts I completely forgot about these! I have been reading Maria Shell's blog for a while now. If you have never seen it, go look now! Her work is really amazing.
Way back in November 2013 Maria posted about her Artful Oven Mitts. I was smitten with them and as luck would have it she was offering her mitt pattern to the first 100 people to request it. I was one of the first to do so and have had the pattern sitting here for way too long. A few weeks ago I decided to make a pair for a dear friend of mine. We have decided to forgo giving a holiday gift to each other starting next Christmas, but I wanted to make her one more special thing for this last time. I had the patchwork partially sewn together in my scrap bin and it didn't take long to quilt them. I was happy that I already had the thermal batting in the stash as well as a heavy cotton for the linings. These were perfect and I'm sure they were well received. Thank you again Maria for your inspiration!
