    Thanks...it is a little tiny bit more involved than some patterns but really worth the little extra work for nice gifts . I do find most people not use this sort of potholder but say they use them for hanging in the kitchen.

    I would like the pattern for this. Is it available on line?

    Do you use insul brite in your potholders, or just regular batting. I haven't seen the insulated batting here. Maybe I just never thought to look. But I was just wonder if I could use regular polyfil batting.

    I use 2 layers of cotton batting...they are good for average heat of pots and pans..not for oven but certainly work well for handling a pot on the stove or as a hotpad....I have had no trouble with any of my potholders like this...and like I said before ...seems most say they use them for decorations really.

    I love your pot holders and the fabrics you used. I would like to know the finished size of yours, if you don't mind. I have some left over Christmas fabric that would be perfect for these.
