New Projects To Warm Up the Holidays

Oct 19, 2021 1:30:00 PM / by Erica Bottger

Put on some holiday tunes and pour a mug of hot chocolate because AccuQuilt is getting you ready for the upcoming season with two inspiring new dies in their Warm Hands, Warm Hearts release today!



Customizable Oven Mitts For Days

The GO! Oven Mitt is a fun and useful project die that you’ll find yourself using again and again, all year long. There are endless opportunities for embellishments and applique to make personalized oven mitts for friends and family – and don’t forget some for yourself, too! Be sure to pick up some Insul-Bright insulated batting to make sure they are safe!



More than Just a Mitten

The GO! Mitten is an adorable applique die that has so many uses! The die features three shapes that would be tedious and time-consuming to cut by hand – the mitten, cuff, and tiny snowflake. This winter classic can be used for fusible applique.

Finish it with complimentary, downloadable embroidery, with raw edge applique, or any stitch you choose – but you won’t want to stop there! This shape is perfect for making ornaments, gift tags, garland and so much more!


How to Embroider Mitten:


Mix and match your fabrics, try out cotton, wool, felt, faux fur, and craft foam. Let your creativity soar and don’t be afraid to get young crafters involved. This die is great for fun holiday crafts for kids, too. How excited will they be to cut those perfect shapes quickly, easily, and most importantly safely!

Take a look at some of the ideas that our team has come up with. All of these patterns are available as free downloads on the AccuQuilt website.



Complimentary Patterns



GO! Oven Mitt

Here are all the basics to get you started creating oven mitts. With this pattern, you’ll “create” your own quilted fabric by quilting together the outer fabric, Insul-Bright insulated batting and lining fabric before cutting it on your die, how slick is that?
