Gift-Giving: Kitchen Gift Basket + Free Oven Mitt Pattern

by Kim on December 14, 2009

I wouldn’t say that cooking is my absolute favorite thing to do, but I do enjoy baking during this time of year! Shelli from our team came up with a darling oven mitt pattern that you can download for free! I ended up making one today and couldn’t wait to make it a part of a cookie gift basket.

So head on over to our website and download YOUR free pattern and instructions for making an oven mitt! While you’re there, don’t forget to download the free instructions for a coordinating hot pad and chef hat, too!

And here’s another stocking stuffer question for you!

We made giant clothespin recipe holders. This oven mitt will be a great addition!! I am downloading it as soo as I can. Thank You!!!

What a great idea. I love even the gift tag. Do you have a printable gift tag for the Hot Chocolate and Mug gifts. I believe it is called “snowman soup”. Thanks for all you do. Jenelle

I gift recipe books, aprons and the oven mitt would be a nice addition. Thank you for the idea. I have not download the pattern, I used to make oven mitt by measuring my hand. But if i will make it for gift, I have to down load the pattern.

I just downloaded the pattern and think it will make a great addition to a food basket. I like to make a gift basket with all the ingredients for a great Italian dinner at home. Sauce, noodles, cheese, and crusty bread along with the potholder will make a great dinner. Thanks so much for the idea.

I was thinking of doing aprons this year for teacher gifts, oven mitt would be a great addition to this. Cute idea!

6 Becky 12.15.09 at 5:32 am

My daughter and I are making handmade gifts for her teachers this year. I think the oven mitts will make a great addition to the baskets.

Such a cute idea! I just made a batch of Pioneer Woman’s cinnamon rolls. It would be so cute to tie the oven mit onto the package! Too late this year, but I will definitely keep it in mind for next year.

My daughter is also planning on a cooking birthday party this year. This along with an apron would make an adorable party favor!

I’m loving these videos!
I think hot pads are always fun to give and I’m going to head over to the website for a peek at some!

9 Carolyn Hutchinson 12.15.09 at 6:21 am

I’m making tea towels and an apron and adding a cookbook and whisk.

10 Jaime B. 12.15.09 at 6:33 am

I got it. I can’t wait to add some Christmas mitts to my Kitchen. I know just the fabric.

11 Carla 12.15.09 at 6:40 am

Love the ideas.

12 Janice Pearson 12.15.09 at 8:51 am

What a great idea! It would be fun to make a mother & daughter set. Cant’t wait to try it!

13 Jen 12.15.09 at 9:46 am

Downloading now! An excellent gift. I like the idea of an apron and mitt as a teacher gift with a coordinated embroidered tea towel too! ;)

14 Tami 12.15.09 at 9:49 am

Love it! I’m going to download it right now and maybe it can become part of the nieghbor gifts NEXT year! Then I’ll have all year to make them :)

15 Margie 12.15.09 at 10:43 am

This would be great to make for a new college graduate’s first apt./kitchen. You could use fabric that has their college mascot on it in case you don’t know colors they would like. What a super “My First Place” gift!

16 Ginger 12.15.09 at 10:44 am

I just downloaded the pattern. Thanks so much. I always bake cookies to share during the holidays.

17 Tiffani 12.15.09 at 11:10 am

18 Barb Hale 12.15.09 at 11:38 am

I’m making Food in a Jar gifts for some family members. This oven mitt would be a great addition. Thanks!

19 MelissaB 12.15.09 at 11:53 am

We’ll be making some fudge and cookies to give. Love the over mit – that is so cute and something I’ll have to dive into once I get my holiday sewing done.

20 Dina 12.15.09 at 12:05 pm

I just downloaded the pattern and boy would it look cute with the duet apron!

21 Maryanne @Scrappy Gifts 12.15.09 at 12:31 pm

What a great idea! I just downloaded my patterns. These are perfect since I just bought my son a little kitchen set.

22 Christina Zacny 12.15.09 at 12:40 pm

I think these would go great with a layered cookie in a jar kit. Very nice idea. Thanks again!!

23 Deborah K 12.15.09 at 12:41 pm

I’m making cookies with a mini recipe book. Yes, I’ve downloaded–can’t wait to make!

24 April 12.15.09 at 2:19 pm

26 Vicki Arnold 12.15.09 at 5:40 pm

Downloaded this. I think I’m going to combine this with the whisk and the hot pad for a gift. Need to find a recipient though, lol.

27 Sheila C 12.15.09 at 6:23 pm

Just downloaded the pattern, thank you!!


28 Jenn @ FFP 12.16.09 at 12:25 am

I like to find unique mixing bowls or other cooking bowls at the thrift store. I pair it with a customized (& cheap) DIY cookbook or a freebie I’ve scored through the year. For instance last year I gave a cool looking mixing bowl with a Jiffy cookbook and included a couple of boxes of Jiffy Mix.

29 Misty 12.16.09 at 5:01 am

Off to download the pattern right now!!

30 Gail 12.16.09 at 5:21 am

I love giving food items as gifts. Usually I will pair it with recipe cards, or a cookbook. I have even given Kitchen Hand soap and attached measuring spoons on the front of the package with the bow.

31 Audrey 12.16.09 at 6:46 am

I love to give Dip Mixes that I’ve made from scratch!!

32 Debbie 12.16.09 at 7:57 am

Oven mits and matching aprons…what a nice idea.

33 Marilyn2222 12.16.09 at 8:16 am

I downloaded my pattern. I am making casserole dish covers and this would be great to go along with them. Thanks!

34 Karen 12.16.09 at 8:57 am

I’m going to download my pattern as soon as I have ink in my printer again :) And, I’m just about ready to start on assorted Chex mixes and truffles for gifts.

35 Shelli 12.16.09 at 9:40 am

Kim, I love how your oven mitt turned out! What a great gift basket idea! I am actually making some personalized pie plates, so these and the hot pads together will make a great gift basket! Thanks for all you do!

36 Mama Lusco 12.16.09 at 10:13 am

Thanks for the pattern! I haven’t tried to make oven mitts yet, but love giving aprons as thank-you gifts.

37 lizzy kay 12.16.09 at 10:50 am

Thank you sew much. I hope to use this with a group of ladies that we teach basic sewing skills. They will love it and will be sure to facebook the pictures.

38 Candy 12.16.09 at 10:59 am

I have down loaded the pattern and will be reducing it in size to make a child size verson to go with the apron and chef’s hat that I have for my youngest daughter (3years old) She loves to “cook”

39 Sarah in MO 12.16.09 at 12:16 pm

No, I haven’t downloaded mine YET. :) I’m giving homemade quick bread, cookies, and fudge as gifts this year. :)

Thanks for all your great ideas! Merry CHRISTmas!

40 Ng Lay Yen 12.16.09 at 5:57 pm

Yes, I have downloaded the pattern. I would include crochet scrubbers (Tawashi) if that’s acceptable.

41 Catherine 12.31.09 at 9:54 pm

Hi – I just found your site – the tutorial videos are great! Do you have any fabulous ideas for using a 17″ x 17″ cloth napkin? I found some cute valentine ones today and am drawing a blank in creativity-land! Help!!

42 Patsy 03.20.10 at 4:07 am

I have baked Cranberry Nut Bread, wrapped in plastic wrap,then wrap bread in red tissue paper (like you would for a gift bag) inserted into a quilted muslin oven mitt, tie a red ribbon bow around above the thumb, insert holly sprigs into the bow. And there you go…Beautiful. This pattern is perfect. Thanks.
