Update:  harumph.  I have dug through the pile where I keep my batting.  I KNOW I had a piece of leftover InsulBrite.  It's not with the other pieces of batting.  It's also not where it shouldn't be, i.e. any other place. 

The ONLY solution I can think of is that some dastardly person entered my house, proceeded to my sewing room and STOLE my leftover InsulBrite.  That rat bastard.  I have been stymied.

You are not stymied because you do not have to use the fancy InsulBrite batting.

Batting that is 100% cotton works very well. I've used two layers of Warm & Natural batting for my potholders and have not suffered any ill consequences. 

If you stop and think about it people were making potholders before InsulBrite was invented.

Suze, my instructions have you tacking the center down and I use a couple of layers of flannel rather than batting.

My grandmother bunched up her pinafore apron with a linen dishtowel to grab things and pull them out of her oven ..  guess women were tougher in the old days.  LOL

But then we kids rode our bikes without helmets and knee pads too. LOL

There is absolutely no other explanation!  Rat bastard indeed!

Would you like some of the generous forum members to send you a bit of InsulBrite before the aforementioned Rat Bastard infiltrates *their* sewing spaces and absconds with their own small stash?

I shall assume only a small bit is needed for this particular project.  No doubt the thief RB is aware of this and hatched his dastardly plan to wreak mischief and mayhem in your creative endeavors.  Fairly rude, really, if you think about it.

Or, you could buy another small piece if InsulBrite and the wayward one be sure to show up. Sometimes I think things like to hide  just to get us crazy.

Lynne,  I am *quite* sure your suggestion is 100% accurate.  That seems to be the way of the world.

And the reason why Mr. Pirate has FOUR big, ol' wrenches, when one is more than sufficient.

And my DH has EIGHT orbital sanders in his woodworking shops.

But I never complained because his woodworking tools created many lovely pieces for my quilting room.
