Walmart is getting rid of the fabric again. So I got some insulbrite for $1.74 a yard. I have never used insulbrite or the teflon stuff. I know I have asked in other threads of what to use for the potholders. Now I don't think that I have asked this question, but is the teflon stuff better than the insulbrite? Is it thicker than the insulbrite. So far i have only bought just a little of this. As of the other day before I got this I was going to buy the teflon.

Wow, that is a great price. I will have to look for that next time I'm at Wal-Mart. Teflon would be much thinner. You would still need batting. The last potholders I made, I used batting in addition to the insulbrite. I guess I like the look of fabric instead of teflon for potholders.

Yes I know that I would still need to use the batting with it.

sure, our store has it for the reg. price. I bought a yard to make potholders and casserole covers for an upcoming shower. I needed it anyway. :)

Another stupid question, when using isulbrite will you be able to use both sides of the potholder if I use only one piece of insulbrite? Like I said before I haven't made potholders before and I want to be able to use either side of the potholder when I pick up my hot dish. I am sorry that I just can't make something so simple without asking alot of stupid questions.

Hey, don't be so hard on yourself. Those are very good questions and as a newbie I appreciate every question asked and see it as a learning opportunity.

btw, in the one potholder I completed I only put the Insulbrite on one side. However, I did add another layer of batting. It's thick, and big I went with 8" x 10", but I don't get burned and it also works great as a trivet.

Take Care, Maribeth

Thank you so much for all of this valuable information. I have been thinking of making some pot holder's & hot pads for this coming Christmas gifts. I will check out Walmart to see if they have it on sale too.

i turned my whole kitchen table into an ironing board using 1 old tablecloth, 1 layer of batting, 1 layer of insulbrite, and 1 fitted twin size sheet on top. it all rolls back up inside the sheet when it's time to put it away. so much easier now to iron fabs and to press tops. :-)
