Wow, I haven't sewed a potholder in 35 years! But my 1 year old puppy ate our potholders and we needed new ones.
I looked at the ones at the big box stores and the only ones I found were either stupid ugly or so thin I thought we'd get burned using them. And besides who doesn't love a cupcake done in retro vintage fabric?
If you're like me and haven't sewed a potholder in years, you're going to be surprised at the fillers on the market. I used two layers of filler, one called Insul Bright a filler that had thinsulate looking stuff in in it as well as Warm Batting a thick organic filler.
Now I want to make some more!
