I was laundering all my Christmas towels, potholders, etc and tucked those away for another year. I then had to replace my stack of potholders with my year-round ones, which I had already laundered and waiting in the cabinet.
I was looking at a couple of them and discovered they are really pretty worn and threadbare. Well that won’t do when you’re trying to hold on to a hot plate or pan. Then I got an idea. I have tons of fabric scraps and also some binding scraps from when I made THESE: My Adult Mealtime Coverups.
I am so excited……here are all the new potholders I can make with my scraps:
My old ratty one is at the top of the photo along with the cotton batting I am going to place in between these cotton prints you see here. I was also doing some research online and found THIS. Its called Insul-Bright. I had read some reviews about hearing a crinkle noise, but it does have metalized poly film insert so that makes sense.
My current potholders are just thick cotton batting, so do I really need that? The site recommends putting a layer of cotton batting on both sides as well as its polyester. It might make these too bulky. Ah what to do.
But at any rate, anyone interested in some??? 🙂
I need to get to the store and see what I can find and I will do an update when I get one sewn up!
