Learn how to make a double oven mitt with a free sewing pattern. This kitchen sewing project can be a large hot pad and makes a great gift.

Baking is great, but have you found an oven mitt that always protects your hands? I’ve been teaching my kids how to take things out of the oven, and I get so nervous that they’ll burn their hands.

I decided to make a large double oven mitt that would protect their hands and the front of their body. I also love that a double oven mitt can be used as a really large hot pad. A double oven mitt is so handy and useful!

What fabric should I use for a double oven mitt?

The best fabric to use for a double oven mitt is quilting cotton. Cotton is best for heat, and quilting cotton is easy to find and easy to sew. There are so many fun colors and prints you can use.

What batting should I use for a double oven mitt?

It’s very important to use cotton batting for anything that will be exposed to a lot of heat. I used two layers of cotton batting for this double oven mitt, and it works perfectly. Alternatively, you can use insul-bright for this sewing project.

What is a PDF sewing pattern?

A PDF pattern is a sewing pattern designed on the computer and organized so that it can be printed on several letter or A4 size pieces of paper.

I love using PDF sewing patterns because if the pattern gets ruined or if my children or I changed sizes, I can always print it again. It’ll never be destroyed since I have a digital version!

How do you use a PDF sewing pattern?

Open the PDF on a computer and click print. When printing make sure that the scaling is set to 100% or no scaling so that the pattern prints at the correct size.

Once the pattern is printed it can be taped together to get the full size. Then the pattern can be cut for each pattern piece size or individual sizes can be traced so that the pattern can be used again and again. Learn how to use PDF sewing patterns.

double oven mitt sewing pattern supplies

Cut out two main pieces from fabric, two main pieces from cotton batting, and one main piece from fusible interfacing. Cut out 4 pocket pieces from fabric, and two pocket pieces from fusible interfacing.

cut fabric, batting, and interfacing

Fuse the interfacing to the back of two pockets and the back of one main piece of fabric.

fuse interfacing to fabric

Layer a fabric pocket and an interfaced pocket with wrong sides together. Finish the short edge with bias binding. Do the same to the other pocket pieces.

finish straight ends of hand pocket

Lay a main piece of fabric right side down. Layer the two cotton batting pieces on top. Layer the interfacing main piece of fabric down right side up. Then lay the two pockets on each end. This is a lot of layers!

Optional: if you want to quilt the layers, keep the pockets off and quilt the four layers together. Then place the pockets on before the next step.

layer batting, fabric, and pockets

Clip around the edges to keep all the layers together.

clip all layers together

Baste all the layers together 1/4 inch from the edge all the way around.

Trim any edges that shifted as you sewed.

trim edges that shifted

Sew bias binding around the edge. I like to start by sewing it on right sides together with the bias binding open and unfolded.

sew bias binding onto the edge

Fold the bias binding around the edges and clip in place. Sew the bias binding in place.

flip and fold bias binding around and sew

For extra security, mark the center of the double oven mitt. Stitch a line down the middle from bias binding edge to bias binding edge. This will help keep the layers together in one more spot.

sew down the center to mark

You finished!
