These silicone oven mitts are available in three colorways: green, red, and transparent. The pattern is the same – just the color of the silicone is different. Once you have the pattern, you can purchase additional silicone overlays in your choice of colors.
The silicone overlay is 100% food grade silicone and heat resistant up to 450 degrees. It has a great grip and can be washed off in the kitchen sink. Visit our website to for information on purchasing additional silicone. These are due to arrive the end of this month so place your orders now.
The creative names for these patterns are as cute as the patterns themselves!
Gnomies is a sweet applique design that looks great on a towel, pillow, table runner – you decide!
Here We Gnome Again would be a great block of the month in applique. Why not do the gnomes in wool on a flannel background?
Gnome for the Holidays by Sandy Gervais is a pieced table runner that is sure to please!
FaLaLa is a quick pieced quilt with a Dr. Seuss type tree overseeing the gnome!
Again, A Tale of Two Gnomes would be a great block of the month and a great way to showcase plaids and checks.
Gnome for the Holidays is another obvious choice for a block of the month. Who can resist these little guys getting ready for the holidays???
Noggin uses two different four inch log cabin tools by Creative Grids. The pattern actually combines curvy, traditional and courthouse steps blocks. This could be broken down into a three month class as well.
Twister Gnomes uses the Lil Twister tool for the pinwheels with appliqued gnomes on each end – simply darling!
When five gnome patterns are in the top 100 patterns, it is time to take notice! Start a Christmas by the month program now so they can have everything done by the next holiday season!
Silicone is showing up everywhere! Its heat-resistant properties are the perfect combination for quilters on the go.
Around the Bobbin has a new travel case showcasing at this Market that is sure to please. And since the patterns and silicone refills are due to arrive in the next couple weeks, they are a great choice for gifts this season!
I love the way they have created a separate pocket for the cord so you can pack your bags – even with the curling iron, small portable craft iron, or flat iron is not without worrying about damaging the cord. A fast, fun and easy project!
Lisa Amundson of Around the Bobbin has created a designer oven mitt that makes a great class! All you need is two fat quarters, some cotton batting and the pattern – which includes the transparent food grade silicone overlay.
The silicone is designed to withstand temperatures of up to 450 degrees!
Here are a few tips that Lisa shared with us:
It is easy to sew through the silicone – just use a Schmetz Microtex needle 14/90. Since the silicone is sandwiched between two layers of fabric, stitching is a breeze!
When sewing the cuff, the silicone fits over most free arms. For those of us who don’t have a free arm, it is easiest to turn the oven mitt inside out to do the top-stitching along the cuff.
But who can stop at just one? Refills of the silicone are available:
This pattern has been so popular that Lisa is planning some new releases for Fall Market so teach your customers how to work with the silicone now! I, for one, can’t wait to see what she has in store!
