Casserole Carrier Info - just in time for gifts!
In the past two weeks I've had two people email me for info on the casserole carrier that I make....so.....here you go:
Here is a description of my casserole carrier - which
I like because it can contain different sizes and
shapes of casseroles, 9x13 pans, and round pie plates:
Cut two pieces of quilted fabric: 11" x 30"
Cut two pieces of vinyl or oilcloth: 11" x 30"
Cut handles of 2 pieces quilted fabric 4 1/2" x 15" -
fold raw edges of handles in and press, put folded
edges together and top stitch handles with three lines
of stitching, both edges and a line of stitching down
the middle of the handles.
Sew 2 sections, quilted fabric on one side and vinyl
or oilcloth on the other side, seam with 1/2" seam,
putting 15" handles on the tops of one part, leaving
an opening, turn, press, top stitch all edges.
Lay one on section on top of the other (quilted side
to the outside on both), stitch 3 lines of stitching
to sew the two parts together, leaving 4th side open
to insert sturdy square of wood or other material to
give a firm base.
Sew velcro on edges of inner parts that fold over to
