Casserole Carrier

rosajoe_gwSeptember 25, 2008

I made a casserole carrier out of the quilted placemats from Walmart for my sis and she said it was too pretty and she didn't want to use it.

So I made her another one from plastic $ store placemats and she uses it LOL.

I am trying to make a pretty, usable one for my OTHER sis's BD (6 Girls).

I used denium and I washed, dried, and ironed it OK so it is usable.

BUT I don't like the way it looks, it is too floppy. Should I make it smaller to fit the 9x13 pan better?? What is wrong with it?? I am adding red handles and a white spoon is on the right keeps the pan from falling out.

Frustrated Rosa

That's really cute, Rosa. Could you back it with some pre-quilted fabric to make it a little more stable? As for the size, did you start with the same size as the placemats you bought? I've never made one, so I can't really be of any help....sorry.

I thought the denium would be stiffer. I am going to sew another row of decorative stitching around to make it fit better.
And starch the living daylights out of it. I think the starch will make it more spill proof too.
I have until Dec 26th LOL!!!!!!!!

Maybe you could use iron on stablizer on the inside. I've used it for my tote bags. It masde them nice and stiff. Mary
