    I used left over scraps of drapery interlining until they ran out. Now I have to purchase it! Several (3-5) layers with the silver ironing board cover material on one side and any cotton fabric I think will work in the kitchen colors on the other. One of my daughters always reminds me to make the loop big enough to hang on her kitchen cabinet knobs! She displays them a while before actually using them! LOL

    I agree - one layer of Insul-bright and 2 layers of batting - works like a charm!

    Is it the stiffer silver fabric or the one that's more flexible? I found the soft/flexible one at JoAnns recently and it was labled 'ironing board cover'. I already had the thicker kind. And $4.98 a yard is CHEAP! It's 9.00 at JoAnns and when we had 60% off coupons it was on sale, of course, for $1.00 off per yard ... grr. But I was able to use one of my 50% off coupons on Black Friday.
