    Good Morning, when making potholders and using Insul-bright do you also use batting with the Insul bright. I would think that you would also use a low loft batting such as Warm and Natural. How do you layer your potholders?

    Thanks,
    JulieM

    I used 2 layers of Insulbright on the ones I made recently and now I think they are a bit too thick. It's kind of hard to wrap them around a handle.

    Great idea!!! I may have to try making some of those. Did they have pockets at the ends to slide your hands into? I saw some like that, but not as big as you are describing.

    I like to add an additional layer of cotton batting, too.
