So...I would like make a couple of rug mugs for an exchange I'm in.  But I don't know what to use for batting, if any.

For those that make them frequently...any suggestions?

I use a thin cotton batting, figuring it will help absorb condensation or spills.  The last I used was Hobbs, but any thin cotton will work.  Some people also use doubled flannel inside, but I haven't tried that.

I have tried flannel as batting but personally don't like it nearly as well as Hobbs Heirloom, which is my batting of choice. I don't wash the batting for quilts but I will pre-wash the cut off and leftover chunks to shrink for tableware.

I use insul-brite for the batting.  That way it can double as a hotpad...
