I made some play oven mitts for the grandchildren last week. The dog chewed the corner off of the mitt that came with their play kitchen, and they used that little mitt a lot when they were playing. My daughter brought me the chewed up mitt and asked me to make a new one for them. I was watching the most recent episode of The Quilt Show featuring Camille Roskelley. In that show she talks about adding alphabet letters to her quilts. That was the inspiration for making two oven mitts, each of which had an initial for each of the children. They won’t be able to argue about whose mitt they’re wearing!
I used the font, AR Julian. Camille Roskelley showed how to use a Word Processor to create the applique letter. The next time I do letters, I am going to use EQ7, as that is a better way for me to keep a permanent copy of what I have done. I was able to find the mirror image in my printer setup behind several layers of setup screens. I printed this in mirror image, then traced it onto fusible, pressed the fusible to the fabric and cut out the letters. The fabric for the mitts was machine quilted on my domestic machine with straight cross-hatching.
Here’s a photo of the mitts. I thought they were just as cute as could be. Note that one child is right handed and the other is left handed.
