The munchkin LOVES “Colorful Cookies,” aka Play Dough Cookies. We saw them on the Idea Room ages ago, and now it is her favorite thing to do, although she likes to make all sorts of shapes and things with them. They take soooo long (they are essentially a sugar cookie) that we don’t make them often, and usually I use it as a reward to get her to do something for me :) She’s been extra helpful lately, so we got to make some colorful cookies today.
But, I have one clean oven mitt. And what’s faster than laundry? Making a new set.
I used my Oven Mitt pattern pieces, and a clearance tea towel set I bought from Target. Each towel can yield one mitt, so the pack of two was perfect. I was barely short on pre-made bias tape, so one mitt got a ribbon loop.
They were so easy to make this time. The last time I made them I had to draw a pattern, adjust the pattern, adjust some more, then cut everything out and sew. I didn’t use any Thermo-whatever stuff, just two layers of batting this time. And heavier fabric.
So, while the cookie dough was chilling in the freezer, I whipped these up so I’d feel cute pulling the cookies out of the oven :). Oh, and so I didn’t get burned. That too! I got a set of adorable striped towels that I am dying to use for mitts… probably as a Christmas gift.
You’ll find the Oven Mitt pattern along with lots of other patterns and templates, here.
And, those cookies still aren’t done, so… no pictures. Hee hee!
