holy crap--I never knew you could MAKE those potholders! Sure beats the ugly ones I have seen!!

What is used to make them "burn proof"? Is is lined with special fabric or just extra thick?

I have some cool kitchen type fabric that I would like to try but the fabric seems too thin...are they quilted?

Well, don't all the old potholders and oven mitts your mom uses have burn marks on them? My mom's do, so I am sure even the ones bought at a store aren't "burn proof."

Cotton has a high heat tolerance so I think quilting cotton would be okay to use. I say this with confidence because the highest (or second highest) heat setting is needed on the iron to affect cotton. However, you would definitely need some way to give the item some padding to protect your fingers.

Quilting with a cotton batting instead of a synthetic batting would probably be very wise. Or what about using a nice think cotton towel as the batting? Hmmm....

The woman at the fabric store here had told me that she uses ironing board covers to line her potholders.  My mother uses cotton batting.  Another person I ran into said she uses flannel shirts and old jeans.  Just cotton cotton cotton.

You can buy cotton quilt batting that's super thick and is actually designed for "kitchen crafts." I use this for my own potholders. You don't want to do laps around the house while holding hot pans, but they are just fine for transferring thing from oven to countertop!  Cheesy

I got this fantastic death-head's moth shirt from chittybangbang!  And she threw in a bonus felt patch so I can put it on something else!



The baby is one day late now and getting into this cool shirt is one MORE reason I want it out now!  Grin
