I had my husband scan a pattern for you but I can not open it. If you would like a pattern, I will be happy to email it to you. My day went so fast trying to figure out this pattern....it was mid morning when I started and the next thing I knew my husband was coming through the door.
You will place the mitt pattern on the fold as well as the pocket, both pieces are the same but as you will note the pocket is just shorter.
Here is a picture of what the pocket looks like after cutting on fold (the mitt will look the same but bigger) You will want four of each, the mitt and pockets. Then you will fold the pocket in half....this is actually what the pattern of the pocket would look like before putting on the fold.
Then I sandwich the mit by putting insul brite on the bottom, then the two mitts right sides together with the pockets and hair bob in the middle. You want to leave an opening between one side of the pockets, from pocket to pocket so you can turn it. Be sure to backstitch at the pockets.
So this is what is left of a fat quarter, probably enough to make a loop if you want to use the fabric instead of the hair bobs. You will see later that I shortened my pattern so you will now have more scraps to get your loops from if that is what you want. So...I decided to make another one but this time with longer pockets and I didn't like where the loop was so I put it in the middle.
I also forgot to tell you to sew about a 2 inch line right in the middle between the pockets. I love the deep pockets but I still don't like the loop in the middle...and I decided to shorten the mitts and sooooooo
2 1/2 inches in length
draw an arc at the top - from the bottom of the fold line to the top of the arc it is 4 inches.
The pocket is the same but 1/2 inch shorter than the mitt (you may want to shorten them for a bigger side hole to pull the mitt rightside out. I will confess that I like the deeper pocket but it is really hard to pull this mitt through).
I love it!!! I also put the hair bob across the pocket but in this case it is across the back but you can flip it over. This way it is not in the way, for some reason it was bothering me flopping to the top or side. I like this much better. No flopping or distraction......
So I made three more....these are fast and fun (after getting the pattern the way I wanted).... Thinking about making potholders to match and maybe a towel. The sky is the limit.
I close the hole with a blind stitch....you can sew it shut on the machine. I did this on the first one but didn't like the looks of it.
Now, I did not come up with this idea, I saw it at a store in Hawaii but it did not have a loop to hang the mitts with. You can get you a little magnet with a hook and hang these on the side of your microwave. How cute would that look?
