I love the idea of using insulated batting and have used tons of it in the past, so I was anxious to experiment with this new product. I am highly impressed! It is soft and flexible and much much easier to sew with. Hopefully, you can see how soft it is from this photo:
This is the GOOD!
I decided I'd start with some potholders. They are fast and easy - a great way to test the insulated batting. Plus I had been dying to use this new fabric, Domestic Divas by Riley Blake Designs, that I just LOVE.
I pieced together some fabrics and used a spray adhesive to adhere it to a piece of the Insul Fleece:
Loved the softness of the potholder, it doesn't make that crinkly sound and how cute are those fabrics?
The potholder itself ---- perfect . . . . . . . . . . . if you have the hands of a giant:
(Honestly, what was I thinking, the thing is huge - makes a great hotpad though.)
Finished Potholder 1 --- The BAD.
Back to the drawing board, re-sized and we have Potholder 2:
Size is perfect but Potholder 2 ---- FAIL! Yikes! Look at the workmanship on that thing.
Note to Self: Trying to design and sew, while making dinner and feeding the dogs and doing all that other household stuff at the same time NEVER works!
Once again it's back to the drawing board . . . . check in tomorrow - It's all GOOD!
