Mini Mitt

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. or  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:  You can find the mitt pictured above at:


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.
