    I bought some insulbrite to make some potholders and my craft room ate it. I have no idea where it went to lol. I am going to get more.

    I also read online of people using denim in potholders. I think I'm going to try out a few combinations and see what I like best. Sounds like the cotton/insulbrite/cotton combo is in the lead for popularity lol

    Insubright is a good product to use. I recently made jean potholders w/ one layer of cotton batting. It does not stand up to the heat. luck for me they're mines. I would have been disappointed if it was a gift and was burning the recipient's hand. :oops:

    There are directions on the paper that comes with InsulBrite. I believe it says to use one layer of InsulBrite (shiny side toward the heat) and two layers of batting underneath. This gives a nice thickness to the pot holders.

    You can use a coupon at JoAnn's for InsulBrite. It comes by the yard by the interfacings.

    If I am using an old mattress pad will I need more than one layer?

    I think that would depend on the thickness of the old mattress pad. Many of the more recent mattress pads are much thicker than the really old ones. So why not try out a single layer and if it is sufficient, then go for it!

    Does anyone know if 2 layers of Insulbrite will work? I have the potholders made except the bindings. So I could unsew them and add another layer without much trouble. Don't have any batting around.

    You can buy Insulbright by the yard at Joann's if you live near one of them. It is with the utility fabrics. I always buy quite a bit when I have a coupon, since I like to make 2 handed pot holders for gifts.

    I am on budget so I use either my FMQ practice squares or, more frequently ,layers of batting between recycled denim form jeans + a piece of whatever color fabric necessary facing the top layer.
