Oven Gloves by Rebecca Cole

Oven Gloves by Rebecca Cole

Oven gloves are a must in a kitchen but something that is so practical can also add to the gorgeous look of a kitchen. These gloves are a super easy make and will be something to show off when you are baking.

You will need:

  • Thermal resistant wadding
  • Cotton fabric in two designs
  • Bias binding 15mm widev
  • Sewing machineAdvanceAdvance
  • Walking foot with stitch guide (optional)
  • Sewing scissors
  • Tape measure
  • Set square/Dressmaker’s rule
  • Sewing thread
  • Straight pins
  • Erasable fabric pen

Time to Make: 1 hour

Skill Level:Beginner


  1. Step 1 Step 1

    Firstly, cut out you pieces to the right shape and size. You will need 2 rectangles from one pattern cotton sized 85cm x 18cm, and one piece of thermal wadding at this size. Curve one of the ends and trim to the shape and then use this curved end as a template for all of the other ends. Next cut 4 rectangles from the other pattern fabric sized 21cm x 18cm and 2 in the thermal wadding, and use the curved ends of the longer pieces to shape one side of each of the pieces to match. One layer of wadding should be enough but if you wish to produce a thicker glove, use two layers of wadding.

  2. Step 1

    Layer up the pieces, sandwiching the wadding between the cotton layers, right sides out, so that you end up with one long piece and 2 smaller pieces. Pin the layers together all the way around the edges.

  3. Step 1 Step 1

    Using your dressmaker’s ruler or set square, mark a diagonal line at 45 degrees to the edge of the long piece running through the centre of the panel. Sew a line of top stitching along this line. Continue sewing parallel lines approximately 2.5cm apart across the whole of the fabric piece. Repeat this process in the opposite direction so that you end up with quilted diamonds running across the whole length of the fabric sandwich. This process is made easier using a walking foot with a stitch guide, however it can be achieved by measuring and marking the fabric before stitching.

  4. Step 1 Step 1

    Next, stitch a length of bias binding along the straight edge of the smaller fabric pieces. Sew the bias binding by opening one of the folded edges and stitching in the groove through all the thicknesses of fabric along the edge being bound. Next fold over the binding to the opposite side and top stitch this side in place, enclosing the fabric edge. (How-to images in step 7)

  5. Step 1 Step 1

    Cut a 10cm length of bias binding and fold it in half lengthways. Top stitch down both edges of the tape. Fold it in half and pin to the centre of one of the long sides of the quilted fabric piece, raw edges in line with the edge of the fabric.

  6. Step 1 Step 1

    Pin the smaller pieces to the ends of the long quilted piece, lining up the curved ends. If there is any misalignment trim away any excess so that they sit flush.

  7. Step 1 Step 1

    Stitch bias binding all the way around the outside of the gloves, starting hallway along the long straight edge that doesn’t have the loop pinned. Fold over the end of the bias binding towards you before starting to sew. Sew the binding around the whole outside edge, catching in the ends of the loop, and around each curved end, enclosing all 6 layers of fabric, until you return to the point at which you started. Overlap the folded end and trim away the excess binding. Turn the gloves over to the other died, turn the binding over and top stitch in place. The point at which the ends of the binding cross over should be neatly tucked away under the folded end of the tape.

  8. Once you have put 6.9g of beads into the bottom of each of your 18 channels, give the blanket a sharp shake, making sure all of the beads have dropped right to the bottom. Hang your blanket over the edge of a table or chair and pin in the opposite direction to with you are going to sew (this makes it easier to remove the pins as you stitch) placing a pin along the stitch line in every pocket. This will help prevent the beads from slipping out of their little pockets while you sew. Take the blanket to your machine and sew a line of stitching along the line running perpendicularly to the channels, enclosing the beads into the bottom row of squares. Your gloves are now complete.
