Nifty Microwave Mitts

The perfect gift for that lucky Mom in your life for Mother's Day or your sister at Easter or even a good friend "just because" or just to cheer someone up, these nifty microwave oven mitts will save your fingers from hot bowls and plates! 

Inspired by a church friend who wanted me to fashion a pair for her kitchen, they are available in an ever changing range of fabrics and colors!
I'll make 'em in any color/color combo you'd like. Many of my fabrics are listed on the sidebar to the right, however I have other fabrics available including holiday fabrics. And if you like surprises I can work from directions like, "I like blues and purples, but absolutely no reds," if you really want to leave the fabric up to me. 

There are so many great things about these nifty mits--
  • they're hand-washable, 
  • they include a magnet for hanging on the microwave or dishwasher or fridge, and 
  • with so many colors what a neat way to seasonally spice up your kitchen! 
  • You could get a pair that coordinates with an apron from Scarlet Threads for the ultimate gift set!
  • I've priced them at $10/pair, but I'll also sell them 3 pair for $27. (also Trudy's idea--see how wonderful she is!)

This is my son's little hands in them and although at 5 years old he's a little young to be removing things from the microwave as it's up high, his 7 year old brother has used them quite a bit. 

Put 'em on--Fingers in one side, thumb in the other and bend.

Use 'em--safely remove your hot bowl or plate from the microwave. (Best done with one on each hand.)

 Hang 'em up--they're magnetic!
If you'd like a pair, please email me  (almquist at fmtcs dot com) or leave me a comment. I'm (slowly) working on getting a PayPal button up on the site too. 
Enjoy!
