DIY No-Sew Fried Egg Mitts

Give plain oven mitts a much-needed makeover with felt and Aleene's Fabric Glue! Make a set of DIY fried egg oven mitts with no sewing required using simple layers of felt to create pot holders inspired by the popular fried egg emoji. The project comes together in just 5 minutes, and these oven mitts/pot holders are useful to have around the kitchen or cute to give away as a gift. 

What you need:
  • Aleene's Fabric Glue
  • Fabric pot holders/oven mitts
  • 2 pieces of white felt
  • 1 piece of yellow felt
  • Pen or marker
  • Scissors


Step 1: Place a pot holder on top of a piece of white felt and draw a squiggly outline for the egg. 

Step 2: Place the outlined piece on top of the other and cut out two equal-sized pieces to make the white part of the egg. 

Step 3: Fold the yellow felt in half.

Step 4: Use a cup or bowl to outline a circle about 3 inches wide on the yellow felt and cut two equal-sized pieces. 

Step 5: Adhere the yellow "yolks" to the middle of the white pieces with the fabric glue. 

Step 6: Line one side of the oven mitts with fabric glue and press the felt fried eggs on top. Set aside to dry overnight before using. 

Then your fried egg oven mitts are ready to use! No sewing, no fuss! For best results, wrap your hand around the felt egg side when using rather than wrapping the felt around hot products.
