Selvage Pot-holders for My Sister Lynne

I made these 4 pot-holders for my sister Lynne yesterday. She will definitely be surprised because her birthday was in May! The backing fabrics by Martha Negley are just right, I think. I love black and white striped binding on selvage quilts. The loops were crocheted with acrylic yarn.
When we were little, my sisters and I used to make each other gifts for Christmas and birthdays, so this project made me smile. Lynne is a great cook, so I hope she uses these up!

Love this idea - what did you use for the 'middle' to keep the heat transfer issue at bay?
