my creative space: kitty mitt

I finally got around to making my kitty oven mitt that I have been wanting to make for ages! I managed to squish the sewing in between sewing cushions and pouches! It was actually a really quick little project to do! I used some mis-screen printed cats fabric! I quite like the very rustic screen printed look!

I used the oven mitt template from sew4home which you can find under "Getting Started" No. 2. To be honest, I didn't follow any of the instructions as it all seem pretty straight forward to me so I just winged it! Luckily it all turned out fine!

:: apologies for the instagram photo I forgot to take one with a real camera!

It was also my first time quilting and I winged that to! I quite enjoyed doing the quilting bit which I think ended up looking excellent!

I am so happy with my new kitty oven mitt :)

But I'm having a bit of a problem using it... it's just too pretty to mess up! :)

Hope you are having a great creative week!
There are lots of creative people over at my creative space...


  1. It looks great, I'd be afraid of using it too, it's too pretty to get greasy marks on it. Maybe you should make a dark brown one and hide it in the cupboard to actually use while this little beauty gets to hang out in public looking cute :)

  2. That is one gorgeous oven mitt! And very cute fabric too.

  3. The prettiest oven mit I have seen.
    Good job with the quilting too.

  4. I wouldn't want to use it either if I owned that Lamina!
    Looks soooo pretty.

  5. I agree, definitely the prettiest oven mitt I've seen too - well done! I adore the cat fabric :-)

  6. It turned out great! You simply have to make two: one for using and one for displaying. :)

  7. It's fantastic! I've had an oven mitt on my to do list for ages now... I really should stop procrastinating about making one! I'm a huge fan of winging it too ;-)
