Default Hot pad question

Hi everyone,

I am making some hot pads for wedding gifts, and I have some ironing board fabric (the silver stuff that isn't necessarily fabric). If I were to use this, would I layer it between my two layers of batting and which way would the silver go? I usually use 3 layers of cotton batting or two layers with a piece of flannel in between. I cook with a lot of cast iron, and I like thick hot pads. I am also making some for myself, because I am replacing mine. Also, have any of you used the insul bright and if so, would you still add some cotton batting?

I use insulbright. I add a layer of batting on each side of the insulbright. This has worked really well for me.

I like them nice and thick also; insulbright plus a couple of layers of cotton batting. I have also used the silver ironing board cover fabric on one side of the potholder and more decorative fabric on the other.

I used the silver material on the outside bottom and didn't like the way it held up after washing. I now use outer fabric, denim. insulbrite, batting, another piece of denim, and then the other layer of outer fabric. I often get the denim from the legs of old jeans.

I used insulbrite and two layers of batting for holiday potholders. They turned out quite well
