    I've gotten mine from Hancock's and if I remember correctly, it was about $4 per yard and a yard makes LOTS of potholders.

    JoAnn's has it, too. Just ask for the silver ironing board cover stuff. They'll know exactly what you mean!!. :lol:

    I just bought some about six months or so ago from Hancock's. I found only Hancock's and JoAnn's carried it, but maybe some smaller stores would. Just go tell them you want ironing board fabric, it tends to only come in silver.

    I pd. 8 a yrd or so, but it was worth it. I made 2 ironing boards and I just love them.

    I bought mine from www.jhittlesewing.com I think at the time it was $3 something and free shipping and it does make a lot of potholders and oven mitts.

    Thank you everyone, I don't have a JoAnn's or Hancock's around here. But I found it at Fabric Depot on sale. I was doing a search , but didn't know what it was called. Insulbrite. but you have to watch it, some places are selling it in 22" widths instead of 45".

    Um, Insulbrite is not the same as the silver stuff that ironing board covers are made of. Insulbrite is heat resistant and will work for hot pads, but it looks like quilt batting, not at all like an ironing board cover. Just so you are sure what you are getting. I have used both for potholders, sometimes even together. Either one will work fine.

    The silver fabric is not the same as the insulbrite. I think the insulbrite is thicker, has a padding/batting and is 3 layers?

    The silver heat resistant fabric is fairly thin, complared to the insulbrite
