I am doing a private swap with a friend I met through this space. She liked the colors I used for the Kitchen Floor Mat, so I thought I would make her a pot holder with my scrap fabrics from that project. I think it came out quite cute, but I will let her be the judge!
As with all of the pot holders I make, I always use Insul-Bright batting to provide insulation. I am pretty sure most local fabric stores are now carrying this; they sell this by the yard. I layered my hot potholder in the follow order: quilt top, insul-bright, regular batting, and the backing. I think two layers of batting are appropriate for hot potholders. I wouldn't want my friend or myself to get burned!
Ha! It matches the mat so well. Time to make myself one!
