    does anyone know where i can get a hand potholder? i think i have asked before about the batting to put in potholders but don't remember. i just read on a thread something about batting with silver heat resistant coating on one side. has anyone used this yet or what have you used?

    Jeanette,
    Try the Joann website, they have everything, including free patterns. Hancocks also has free patterns. I know I found one last year but I truly don't remember where, sorry.

    Happy Quilting,
    Sharon

    :roll: You can use a product called insulbright, which is basically a layer of metal mesh sandwiched between two layers of batting. It is very heat proof and I have made many potholders and hotpads for saving your tables from being scorched by a hot dish. They also have the kind with the silver fabric on one side. It can be purchased on line or through a fabric store. Best of luck to you. Let me know if you have any interesting pot holder or hotpad patterns. Happy Holidays!!

    Try bomquilts.com for pattern ideas. They have a whole section on potholders.

    I like to use old felted wool sweaters for interlining potholders.

    I use insulbrite and I've made many pot holders, oven mitts and scented hot pads. The insulbrite works wonderfully. I got some of mine from www.homesew.com

    i've also been wondering where to buy that stuff. i went straight to the homesew site; did a search; only found one kit. i googled "insulbrite" hoping to find it by the yard. nuthin'. i found 2 measely yards on ebay. i didn't buy it since this is a "someday" need for me. didn't want to ace out somebody who needs it now.

    i think it would, kathy. but unless you have an odd size board the demands a custom cover, it would probably be less expensive to buy one ready made.

    on the other hand ... how cool would it be to have a ginormous ironing mat for a table top? :P
