    Type of Batting to use for Pot Holders

    I want to make pot holders for Christmas (for my crafty, sewing friends who appreciate handmade gifts) but I'm not sure what type of batting to use.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks!
    Michelle

    There is a batting for pot holders. I don't really like it as I think it's to thin. I use regular batting and I usually put a square of recycle blue jeans in the pot holder to give it a little thickness.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    I use a layer of thinsulbright surrounded by a layer each of Warm and Natural (3 layers).
    Current piecing: Zig Zag quilt & LOTL (HSTs done, assembling units)

    The insulbright works great but for a thriftier version use an old bath towel. Pick one up at the thrift shop and you will get lots potholders out of one large towel.
    two simple rules for success
    1. Show up.
    2. Pay attention.
    One simple rule for happiness
    1. Kindness counts.
