I finished a couple of hot pads or potholders to go with dishtowels I embroidered and dishcloths I crocheted. I use Insulbrite inside my hot pads along with either a piece of 100% cotton batting, and old towel or cotton flannel. I used some leftover bits of rickrack for the hanger. I usually make myself a set every year to replace the ones my husband seems to burn up.
And here's the reverse side.
I made a bunch of other hot pads for gift giving but I need to finish the dishtowels for the sets before I blog about them.
