    Welcome to the board! Some have used flannel or fleece instead of backing.

    I used wool in quilt recently. I found some large wool pieces at 2 different thrift shops and in this extremely cold weather I am glad I used them for batting.

    I knew someone who took the two layers of electric blankets apart and used the. You could use flannel sheets. You are probably going to want to find something big enough, as to not have seams, that could cuase lumps

    I've used blankets, even electric ones just make a slit near the plug in and pull the wires out, mattress pads, not the "water proof" ones. I've bought these at yard sales, thrift stores, etc.
