Oven Hand Mitts and a Recipe

My Creative Every Day 2010 project for Saturday was sewing oven hand mitts—always useful in the kitchen.

I used an easy tutorial created by Amy of The Idea Room blog to make starfish oven hand mitts. I paid careful attention to Amy’s edited note about doubling up on the Insul-Bright to ensure protection from the heat.

My friend Paula, a Creative Memories consultant, hosts a monthly scrapbook crop day at her house and feeds us a delicious lunch. Yesterday’s crop was another example of her gracious hospitality.

I took along my new oven hand mitts to show her and we gave them a test run when Paula took her entrée out of the oven. The mitts worked great.

Paula kindly said I could share the recipe she used.

Very pretty Junie! And did you friend try to steal those mitts from you? They look very happy in her hands. The recipe looks wonderful -- thanks for sharing with us!

The oven mitts are really nice as they are not too big to stash in a drawer as I like to do when they are not in use.

Yummy taco ring! It looks like a very flavorful lunch entree. Thanks Paula and June for sharing the recipe!

I think we know that *I* should make some of these so I stop trying to burn my paws off.

Thanks!

Thanks for the link! Your oven mitts are adorable. I love the material. Thanks for the recipe. I love Friday nights...for us it usually means pizza night. Now I have a new recipe to try.

When I first saw the ring...I thought it was some sort of apple pie ring.

But a taco ring is just as good. :)
