To make them you will need:
2 rectangles of fabric 17" by 9" (these will even take big hands - for when your partner is helping with the cooking!)
6 squares of fabric 9" by 9" (2 of these can be a backing fabric if you wish - I used black)
2 squares of thermal wadding 9" by 9"
2 squares of normal wadding 9" by 9"
2.1/2" strips of contrasting colour for binding - total requirement about 108"
5" strip of contrasting fabric 1.1/2" wide for the loop
Cut two 9" lengths of binding (the 2.1/2" strip), fold in half along the length and press. Place along one edge of each of the squares with the fold towards the mniddle and all raw edges together. Sew in place then flip to the other side and hand stitch in place. these squares will cover the back of your hands when you are using the quilted oven gloves.
Place the two ends of the loop in line with the raw edge of the side of the quilted oven gloves. Choose a place in the centre between the two handpieces as this is where the oven gloves will hang from. Pin in place.
