    Love your pot holders and bag! Do you quilt your pot holders before or after binding?

    Wish I had seen your idea years ago, when I think of all the jeans I have tossed when my three kids were growing up. I love what you have done. Great work.

    Love what you're doing with the denim! The bag looks real heavy-duty.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I like your potholders. I am also doing pot holders. This may sound like a dumb question but, on the insulbrite which side has the heat protection? Since I put it between batting will both sides of the potholder be protected. is using two pieces of the insulbrite over doing it? The bags are really nice. Thanks for any help with the potholders.

    What a great idea! I especially like the bag and the fact it is reversible.

    I think both sides are protected-it has a heat reflecting barrier in the middle of the insulbrite
