    Silly Question - INSUL-BRIGHT

    I'm making a Hug-the-Pot Tea Cozy (Pattern) and I want to make it reversible. I bought Insul-bright to use as batting since it reflects the warm/cold back at the source.

    The insul-bright says to have the shiny side facing the hot or cold source (ie the teapot). If I want to make my cozy reversible, do I need 2 layers of insul-bright? Or should I just use the one and have one side of the cozy not work quite as well as the other?

    Thanks in advance for your insight,
    Leigh

    Cute!! I think using 2 layers would make it a little thick to work with. I would only use one....besides just how long are you going to hope to keep the water hot in there anyway?

          Here are the results! I put some thoughts on what I would do differently in "Show and Tell"

          It was very easy to make and if I knew anyone else who might want one I'd make lots. I'd guess it took me between 1 and 2 hours but I was going slow using my new 1/4 foot. (Can't wait till my replacement even feed foot comes in - mine fell apart the other day.)

          For MY teapot going in 6 inches for the slits instead of 8 would have been perfect. You can't see but the slits start right at the base of the pot.
