Making oven mitts

A little while ago, I read about Insul-bright by the Warm Company in a quilting magazine. I needed to make a few Christmas presents and thought that making oven mitt would be a good chance to try it out. I ended up making 4 oven mitts (1 metre of Insul-bright would make 5 of 6 1/2 x 32 inches oven mitts). On the non-insulated side, I actually added a layer of cotton batting to give the mitts a little more loft. The batting also added extra insulation to the mitts. I have kept 'The Cat' for my kitten [kitchen!], and to feel what it's like with handling hot dishes from the microwave oven.It works really well and I'm very happy with it.
