The pattern I have has you sandwiching all the layers together. Then putting rightsides together stich 5/8th all way round. trim to 1/4 inch then turn to the right side. bind the cuff edges.
BUT you then have raw edges touching your fingers. I 'd have thought the bag in bag method of sewing lining then inserting so that the seam of the lining is smooth. Does that make sense?
how would you do it or doesn't it matter.
I don't use oven gloves but a cloth instead just in case you are wondering.
Also this idea of 3 layers together has been advocated for Xmas stockings.

|Looked at my commercially made oven glove and edges are raw inside. Personally, I would use an overlock or zig zag stitch to neaten the raw edges. I would have thought it is safer to have all layers together and quilted, rather than a loose proper lining to slip around.|
Would do the same for Christmas stockings too. No point in making work for yourself for such a short period of use.
I use a tea towel, can't get on with gloves.

that's great thanks Margaret. overlocking will be my preferred method.
