I placed my pattern on the fabric to give me an idea how much fabric I would need. I added at least 1 1/2" around my mitt pattern, so, I end up with a 17" X 22" rectangle. I cut my cotton fabric (outer and lining), two battings, and Insul-Bright using a 17" X 22" rectangle.
1. Sandwich the cotton fabric (outer fabric, right side down)
2. Cotton batting
3. Insul-bright (right side down, the shiny side)
4. Cotton batting
5. Cotton fabric (lining, right side up).
6. So, you have five layers of material in total.
Once you done quilting. . . place your pattern on top, draw around the pattern and cut.
*Make sure you flip your pattern to the other side!
Pin. If you have a Walking Foot, I recommend using it when you're quilting. It is way better stitching and it's easy for your sewing machine. But, if you don't have a Walking Foot, a regular Foot will do. And, start quilting.
Now, place your bias to the end of your mitts and sew.
To make a loop. Cut five inches of your bias and sew one side. Then, fold the piece in half, place it to the opposite side of your thumb mitt and sew about 1/4".
Place the two quilted pieces right side together. I marked one of my linings like a V shape so you know were to sew your thumb space. Pin in place and sew.
Sew with a 1/2" allowance. Cut around the mitt to avoid bulking, especially by the thumb area but be careful not to cut your stitches.
