Finished Cooking Mitt

This easy mitt will keep the cook from getting their fingers burned while grilling those holiday hot dogs and burgers!

There should be just enough fabric remaining from the Reversible Apron to make this mitt.  Add a double thickness of fleece, and a bit of bias-tape to trim the opening and you are ready to sew.

Cooking Mitt Pattern

Print pattern pages.  Assemble by overlapping Page 1 over Page 2, matching the markings.  Glue or tape together.  Cut out the pattern.
