Sewing Projects with Insulating Fabric
Many Sewing Projects Can Be Made With Insulating Fabric
I've compiled a list of sewing projects found online that require the use of insulating fabric. Several projects I've already started, while others I hope to complete in the very near future. Links are provided to the free online tutorials and photo credit is given.
When my sewing projects are complete, I'll replace a few more photos with those of my own. If you've never sewn with insulating fabric, why not give it a try? This fabric is simple to use and easy on the budget. Here are a few sewing projects that require insulating material. Enjoy!

Use Insulating Fabric to Make an Ironing Mat
One yard of Insul Bright and 2 yards of fabric plus some strong magnets was all it took for Thrifty Crafty Girl to create this super ironing mat. This mat fits perfectly on the top of her dryer when needed. Who needs an ironing board when you can make an ironing mat? :) See how this thrifty crafty girl did it here. :)

Sewing Projects with Insulating Fabric - Insulated Casserole Carrier
Thank you Jill at homemade by Jill for sharing your instructions for this really sharp and fitted casserole tote. Most casserole carriers are kind of poofy looking, but Jill's design is streamlined. Love it! I'd be proud to tote this to the next potluck dinner.

Janome Magnolia 7318 Sewing Machine
I LOVE to sew! I've been sewing since the age of 9 and I'm way past 9 now. lol I've sewn everything from lined damask flocked velvet weighted drapes with a blind hem to an entire traveling wardrobe for a very particular and exact, demanding mother in law. ha
I wore out my previous sewing machine in only 4 years and I take good care of my machines. :( This time I was determined to get a good quality sewing machine that was solidly built. At the same time, I didn't want something with a bunch of stitches I would never use. I researched carefully and read the recommendations from real sewists who have this sewing machine. Now that I've experienced sewing with this particular sewing machine, here's what I'm going to tell you: BUY IT! :)
Insul-Bright is NOT for use IN the microwave.
