Kelly Anne Jordan (Crafty Kelly) has cleverly stitched this coordinated trio of kitchen items using only one set of fat quarters, demonstrating how a little can go a long way. Have a go yourself and learn how to use binding tape and insulated wadding to create a practical yet stylish set for your own kitchen.

If you’ve been making the full kitchen set, you should have two full fat quarters, a 4” x 22” strip from your apron and 75% of a fat quarter from the apron pocket remaining. From these, cut the following fabric pieces: (A) two 9” x 22” rectangles, (B) two 9” squares, (C) two 4” x 9” rectangles, (D) two 5.5” x 9” pieces, and (E) four 9” x 10” pieces for the pocket.
Cut a 9” x 35” strip and two 9” x 10” pieces from the insulated wadding. Start joining the fabric pieces, putting them in the order D-C-A-C-D for the outer piece, and B-A-B for the lining piece. Once sewn together, both pieces will measure approximately 9” x 35”.
Lay one of the pocket fabric pieces (E) right side down, place a 9'' x 10'' insulated wadding rectangle on top of it, then place a second pocket fabric piece (E) on top, right side up. Make sure the edges line up, then baste the layers together along the edges.
Bind a short edge of the pocket with double-fold binding tape by opening up one side of the binding tape and aligning the right sides of your fabric with the raw edge of your tape. Pin in place then sew. Repeat the whole process for the second pocket.
Lay the 9'' x 35'' outer fabric rectangle right side down, place the 9'' x 35'' insulated wadding rectangle on top of it, then place the 9'' x 35'' inner fabric rectangle on top, right side up. Make sure the edges line up, then baste the layers together along the edges.
Place a pocket on one end of the glove lining so that the binding tape edge is facing towards the middle. Make sure the raw edges line up, then baste the layers together, leaving the binding tape edge free from stitching. Mirror with the second pocket.
Using a 10” plate and a water-soluble marker, trace around the edges of the glove and pocket, then cut. Trim the layer of insulated wadding around the pocket – this will make applying the binding much easier. Repeat on the other side.
Bind all of the outside edges of the oven glove with binding tape, following the same method as before.
