    Pot Holders

    I recently found my lost love of sewing and made many aprons as Christmas gifts. I purchased a pot holder to accompany my gift because I didn't know what materials to use to prevents "burns". Can someone tell me what to use since I would like to make my own additional extras. Thank you so much.

    It's called Insulbrite. You can buy it in the batting section. It's like batting with a silvery side to deflect the heat. Good Luck!

    I use a layer of ironing board cover (the silver or pink metallic type has teflon coating I think; a layer of warm and natural or warm potato (without the polyester scrim); a layer of InsulBrite followed by another layer of the cotton batting and use fabric on both sides of the outer potholder. Many people just use the batting and Insulbrite ,

    I just used two layers of Quilter's Dream Request weight in my potholders. They work fine for me.

    I've made dozens of pot holders. I use one layer of Insulbrite, and one layer of 100% cotton batting. The cotton batting is a little less flammable than polyester, so better safe than sorry. I also use only cotton thread, no poly or poly blends.
