    I sent some simple instructions via email to my elder quilt buddy. She followed the instructions and has made a bunch of them. She is working on her Christmas gifts for this year. Great way to use up scraps of cotton batting. I made smaller ones to use as mug rugs or soup mug/bowl coasters.
    Thank you so much for the tutorial for such an easy project.

    Thanks

    I had to try this technique, using up some scraps. I loved it.

    I would like to make one suggestion. If you reach in the opening before you turn it and fasten the Insu-Bright with one safety pin, it makes turning it right side out a little bit easier.

    I took a picture of my pot holder but have no idea how to post it here.

    Good idea! I will definitely do it the next time I make one.

    I made about 40 of these tO sell at a craft show and only sold 1! Must not have been in the market for pot holders. I turned my potholder right side out and then inserted the insulbrite/batting sandwich that I had basted together. Had to poke it in the corners and wiggle it around, but found it easier than trying to turn it with all the layers together. I really love these things. Thanks for posting the tute!

    i love this and want to try my hand at it. one question though - when it comes to insulbrite i am a total dummy! two layers i understand but should the shiny sides be together or apart? thanks! i am trying to make things out of my stash and i think i have like two yards of insulbrite in my stash!

    According to the directions with the Insulbrite I bought first, it said to put the shinier side to the hot side so I put the shiny side to the outsides of the potholder so both sides could be used. The Insulbrite that I bought last month said it didn't matter which side was used.. There was a definite shiny side so I still put that side to the heat.
    Also when i made these potholders, I quilted them some so they would stay flat plus it made them more decorative. They are so much fun to make. As insaid in an earlier post, I basted my batting layers together and inserted them after I turned the potholder right side out. It was easier for me and since I was quilting them the batting doesn't shift.

    thanks! i get so confused about this at times especially when flipping them inside out. i bought a adorable cupcake potholder pattern and cannot for the life of me figure how to get the insulbrite to finish with the shiny side facing out. my brain just doesn't work good at times!

    Thanks so much for this tut. They are such fun and I love not having to bind them. I used a 12 1/2 inch 9-patch block left over from my quilt. It was made using 4 1/2" squares. I, too, used a fairly large safety pin to hold the batting while turning and it worked great. My pot holder ended up 8 1/2" and I quilted it SITD to finish it. Here a pic of it, front and back.

    Thanks. I was just experimenting and came up with this hot mat. I used some precut 5" Civil War squares from my stash. The hot mat finished at 9 1/2" before quilting. Thank you again for making the tutorialName:  hotmat  front and back 2.jpg

    I think it is funny because I created and posted this tutorial almost two years ago. Glad people are still enjoying it.

    I'm with you. I love the fact that there is no binding and you end up with a unique look at the end that makes people wonder how you did that.

    Actually I was hunting another tut when I came across yours. Since then I have shared it with a couple of my quilting buddies and we have all been having a ton of fun making them. Guess it proves that sometimes "what's old is new again!" See the joy you started!
