    Probably would work just so the pin doesn't open when you are turning. I didn't have much trouble turning them. The Insul-Bright is firm so that helps.

    if you want your text underneath your pics then post your pic first and hit the return key to be underneath pic and post your text:

    if i dont drop much for him to eat or play with he knocks it off my sewing table. i gotta love him.
    Thanks for the info. I will have to give it a try, I just can't picture how I can hit return under the picture, since we download the pictures in the box below. I'll just have to give it a try. The old site as so much easier.

    I made a quick one just to show my friends. I used 1layer insulbrite and one Warm and Natural. It's similar to the crocheted magic potholder so once I saw the pictures, it made perfect sense. Thanks for the tutorial,it was nicely done.

    Oh, I wondered how they made those crocheted potholders, now I know. That is cool. Do you put batting in the crocheted ones?

    I didn't, but I don't see why a layer of insulbrite couldn't be added. I just learned how to make them so I've only made one so far. The first one had to be un- crocheted as itnwas only 4" square. Next one I added a dozen more chain stitches at the beginning. They are super easy.
