I sewed! Surprised? I must admit I am a little. I made two potholders.
I followed the pattern except I used two layers of cotton batting instead of just one. Then it has the one layer of Insul-Bright. I've been burned by potholders that didn't have enough batting before and don't want that to happen again.
The pattern is called patchwork potholders by Linda Permann. It's in Volume 10 of Sew Simple. I don't know the name of the fabric. It's just some scraps I had.
P.S. It's SNOWING! The first snow of the season!
