Now I'm not recommending you put your kiddo to work in the kitchen with these oven mitts, but they make a great addition to any play kitchen. This year for Christmas I made my niece an apron and chef hat. After I sewed that up I thought some oven mitts would be fun too. Really easy and they turned out super cute.
I first cut out the material in the shape of an oven mitt. Since there were some requests. I've gone ahead and added the pattern of the oven mitt.

Then, I used a triangle to draw lines out on the oven mitt for me to sew.
Next I cut out a piece of batting and white muslin in the same shape. Sandwich the batting between the patterned fabric and muslin and pin in place.
Sew on the lines to give it a quilted look.
Repeat this for the other side of the oven mitt. Pin right sides together and sew around the edge leaving the bottom open. Turn right side out and finish the raw edges of the opening with a piece of bias tape along the bottom.
Here is the apron that I made to match and the little cutie modeling her new cooking ensemble.
