Play Kitchen Oven Mitts


The toy my daughter uses almost every day is her play kitchen. I thought maybe she could use some little oven mitts to help her handle her “hot” meals. These were quick and easy to make. I sewed mine, but you could use craft glue or a hot glue gun to put them together as well.


To start, I had her put her hand on paper and traced around it in a large oven mitt shape. Leave a good inch or more all around the hand and up the wrist a few inches. Then cut 4 of this pattern from felt. I used felt cut from a bolt at Hobby Lobby. It's a little thicker than felt squares, but the squares would work too.














Using a cookie cutter, I traced and cut 2 large flowers from white felt, then I cut 2 smaller flowers from pink felt. Stitch (or glue) the flowers onto the outsides of 2 of the mitts.


Put one embellished and one plain mitt together, and stitch. I used my sewing machine blanket stitch with contrasting thread. A simple zigzag stitch or even a straight stitch would be great too. Leave the end open where the hand goes in.


I had some white seam binding that I sewed around the hand opening. This is an optional step.


Once it overlapped I cut it, leaving a 4-inch tail, and kept sewing down to the end.


Then I formed a loop (for hanging) with the tail and sewed the end to the back of the mitt.


Finally, I sewed a little button on each for a flower center. Next time I would do this before sewing the mitts together—it would be a lot easier.


All set for some pretend baking!

These are NOT meant to handle actual hot dishes, but fabric stores do sell an insulated quilted-type material that is intended for real oven mitts if you want to make a lining to insert. Then they would be a great gift for a little girl with an Easy Bake oven.

  1. What a lovely idea- I've seen so many play kitchens, but no play oven gloves! Brilliant!
