So, my latest and greatest idea to get rich and famous, was inspired by a friend of mine who long ago made a comment to me – ‘oh, you should make lobster oven mitts!’
It has been a very long time in the planning, but I thought about it ever since, and decided for her birthday this year to do just that – make lobster oven mitts. Not just for my friend, but also for her young daughter. Hence – I introduce my latest concept – “Mum & Me Mitts”. The premise, to encourage young ones to help in the kitchen, the perfect gift is to make Mum and Daughter matching oven mitts.
Then I drew lobster claws within the template in black felt tip pen. I scanned the linework in, and coloured it up in Photoshop… laid it out onto my Spoonflower yard material template, and got my lobster claws printed! They arrived in the post a few weeks later and I was so delighted with the colour intensity.
The image below shows my original images that I got printed, so whilst you’ll see there is some colour difference, the final output was very satisfactory. I put layers of cotton and wool batting inside; lined the mitts with oranges and reds, and made the handling side of the mitts black.
