I found that one layer of the Insul-bright heat-reflective batting was not enough for everyday use for the oven and stove.

So, I used two layers of this Insul-bright batting sandwiched around a layer of cotton batting. The 3 layers of batting help make the potholders more heat resistant.Insulbright Batting

Update 7/11/21: I have been using my potholders for a few years now and they have held up wonderfully and the 3 layers protect me when using them to handle hot pots or casseroles from the oven.

The pattern instructions say to bind the potholders by sewing the binding onto the front and then wrapping and hand sewing the back. I personally hate to hand sew so I used a fun and easy method to add the bindings to my potholders. Watch the video below to learn how!
