It's shameless commerce Tuesday, and today I am featuring another new item in my shop – microwave oven mitts. These mini mitts are perfect for grabbing a cup of hot cocoa from the microwave, lifting the lid from a pot, or grabbing the handle of a pan. These potholders are small: approximately 7" in length by 5" in width.
A micro mitt is a handy dandy item to have in your kitchen. It would also be great for someone in a dorm or small apartment. Pair a mitt with some homemade hot cocoa mix and a cheery mug for a care package for someone away at college or a teacher gift. Or pair a mitt with some chicken soup as a get well gift for a sick friend.
The micro mitts are made using high quality designer cottons, InsulBright heat resistant batting, and a layer of white cotton flannel. I used a Keyka Lou Pattern for this item: Just A Pinch Potholder. www.keykalou.com or http://www.etsy.com/shop/keykalou. I substituted a fabric hanging loop for the ribbon loop shown in the pattern.
The single mitt shown above was made using a Metro Café print featuring bright flatware on a cream white background. The print was designed by Louise Cunningham. Organic Cloud 9 chartreuse polka dot fabric was used for the lining and fabric loop.
The mitt is machine washable. I have 9 more mitts cut and ready to sew, so watch for new listings in the Kitschy Kitchen Stuff section of my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/pasqueflower?section_id=10144150.

I hope you had a Merry Christmas or a happy holiday weekend! We enjoyed time with grandkids, and I will travel to South Dakota on December 29 to tag up with my youngest daughter before she heads back to Brooklyn.
