Default Making pot holders..

I'm making 12 pot holders (Boston Red Sox & New England Patriots ) for my adult kids for Christmas and wonder how many layers of thinsulate (if that's what it's called) I need to use in each ? 1 layer & 1 layer thin batting or with 2 thin layers of batting ? I have made them way back, but forget how I made them. Thanks, June

I use 1 layer insulbrite and 2 layers batting. I am sure 1 layer batting may be sufficient but I prefer 2

Insulbrite ?? That's what it's called. I have a large piece I got for something, probably pot holders or ironing board cover. I think I have some warm & natural. Thanks for the speedy response. I'm going to work on them tomorrow.

I use one layer of warm and natural and one layer of insulbright. That is plenty thick for me.

I use 2 layers of insolbright. Make one and see how much heat goes through the one you use. I made a potholder with 1 insolbright and 1 cotton and I burnt my hand on a cast iron skillet.

Question. ... I am wondering which direction do you put the silvery side of the Insulbrite when you use two layers?

I just used two layer of cotton batting and it has been enough not to get burned. I have used them for years. In fact I really like them because they are not too heavy. I didn't even know about something called Insulbrite. Live and learn.
