One thing we tried to focus on when designing this year's patterns line was functionality. We wanted you to be able to really use your finished project - but we also made everything cute enough that it can be given as a gift. The Fruit Stitch Mitts are a great example of this. Functionality + Cuteness! These mitts were inspired by vintage embroidery patterns that are often found made in tea towels and dish cloths at antique shows. We love the special quality that embroidery gives a project, but tried to modernize the look for today's customer. Although you can't see it in the image, these aren't pot holders, they are oven mitts. The hand slides in at the bottom of the fruit. Each side of the mitt is contains Insul-bright batting to protect your hands. The inside is fully lined.
