So this post has a little story attached. I am a person very very prone to home accidents... burns, cuts, grating my fingers, are a usual thing over here! So the other day I am taking something off the oven, using oven mitts in both hands, and I still manage to burn myself (quite badly) right over where the oven mitt ended.
You may be asking yourself, with all the oven mitts she has been making lately, how come she does not have one for herself? I wondered the same thing... but not anymore!
So I made extra long oven mitts, that cover all the way up to where my burn was... they are extra padded, with three layers of fabric, mittens. You see, my kitchen is all black and white (picture was taken in the kitchen counter) so it really calls for colour. These fabrics are so bright and joyful that they make me smile to just see them!
The mittens have a little tag on their side, featuring a button and a button hole, so I can have them attached or use them separate as I like! They also hang really nicely on the oven door.
Another nice feature of the mittens is that they are quite slim, and shaped to really "hug" my hand and arm. I am trying to prevent the mitten to slip down my arm allowing my burning area to be unprotected!
So now I can hopefully be safe in the kitchen... though I still need to sort out the burning issues at ironing time... but for that I will really need to get creative!
