Thanks for all the info! I'm off to make the potholders with batting sandwiched on both sides of the Insul Bright.

When the Insulbrite is between two layers of batting it doesn't matter which side it is facing.

I remember my mother making pot holders from scrap fabric with two layers of worn terry towels between. I do not remember any burned hands. I make mine this way.

I worked in a commercial bakery for 8 years. We had elbow length thick cotton terry oven mitts. I only use pot holders made with thick terry and heavy cotton duck on the 'good' side.

My favourite ones are from Williams Sonomahttp://www.williams-sonoma.ca/willia...potholder-sage They may not be pretty, but I do not have to worry about getting a burn.

I will not buy pot holders at a craft sale, as years ago I was given a pair, they had inadequate batting and a family member was burned. I tossed them in the garbage. From my perspective, a pot holder is a safety tool, if it is not made properly there is a very real chance of injury.

I know pot holders are a quick and easy gift, and sell well at fairs, but I worry about the safety of the product.

Just don't do what I did. I was told that all I needed was insulbrite. Yes I know , but I asked the owner of the quilt store several times and she assured me that was all I needed. Guess what? It didn't work needed more insulation.

I have done this before and had in this order: the pieced top, insulbrite, cotton batting, then the backing.
