DIY fabric oven gloves – free sewing pattern

Hello, my crafty friends! A few weeks ago, I made a new pair of apple-shaped potholders, and since I had just about enough of the fabric, I decided to make a matching pair of oven gloves. When I made oven gloves in the past, I used a pattern included in the book “The hand-stitched flower garden” by Yuki Sugashima. You can check out my older blog post here.

This time I’ve used a pattern that better fits my smaller hands. What pattern is it, you ask? A self-drafted pattern, of course! If you have smaller hands and the standard size of oven gloves is always too big, why not make a pair that would fit better!?! Download my free pdf pattern below 😉

You will need the following supplies to complete the project:

  • External and lining fabric. Use a natural fibre material such as cotton or linen, because they can withstand the heat. I used various scraps of lightweight cotton fabrics, but medium weight canvas works best.
  • Woven interfacing is optional, and you can use it to beef up your fabric if like me you are using quilting cotton or other lightweight material.
  • Heat reflective fleece or thermal batting is a MUST! I tried few different options, but found that Insul-Bright insulating wadding worked best. When working with lightweight fabric I would recommend using two layers.
  • Quilting ruler,
  • Frixion pen or other marking tools,
  • Scissors, snips,
  • Cotton thread and sewing machine,
  • Oven gloves pattern 👇

If you like what I do, please support me on Ko-fi so I can create more awesome free patterns & tutorials like this one.

To make one oven glove cut:

  • Main body, cut x 2 mirrored images from external fabric, lining fabric, heat reflective fleece, x 4 woven interfacing.
  • Loop, cut x 1 from external fabric.

If you are making a pair of oven gloves, double the amount of pieces.

Note: for best results first quilt the fabric and then cut individual pattern pieces.
