What Type of Batting for Place Mats?
I’m making place mats—what type of batting do I need?

If you want your place mats to be heat resistant, you can use heat-resistant batting. Otherwise, you can use thin cotton, polyester, or a cotton/poly blend.
If you need some more information about making your own place mats, our sister site National Sewing Circle has a few helpful videos: Serge-Along Placemats and Sewing Placemats Personalized with Photos.
Hope this helps,
