Pyrex Casserole Carrier
1/2 mt. of print fabric and 1/2 mt. of plain fabric .
1 large button
Small amount of insulation form.
This sewing pattern shows you how to make a casserole cover, the pattern below is for a Pyrex branded dish ( 6 inch x 8 inch 21/2 inch) ( 15 cm x 20 cm x 6 cm) . but you can adapt the pattern to suit your needs.
Cut out one oblong piece in print (30 inch x 6 inch.)
Fold in 1/2 and press.
Now cut a piece out of your insulation form (28 1/2 inch x 3 inch )
Open your oblong piece up and stitch the two ends together, use your press line as a guide, to keep the ends lined up, now fold back over again. You should now have a circle.
Now slip your insulation in and set aside.
Next cut your base out one in print and one in plain.( 8 1/2 inch x 6 1/2 inch)
Then cut a piece of insulation slightly smaller (just a fraction
Sew both pieces together leave a gap so you can turn it and you will need to push your piece of insulation in also.
Once you have finished your base you can stitch the sides to the base ,either by machine or hand stitched.
Now you need to make the handle, cut a strip , from print and plain fabric ( 28 inches x 4 inches ).
Round off the ends cut the plain fabric in 1/2 across the width , stitch the two pieces together the opening will not be seen once you have stitched the handle in place.
It is not necessary to put insulations into the handle but it can be used as a stiffener.
Stitch the gap closed and position the handle so it runs across the bottom and comes up on both sides and is buttoned so you can carry it. I put a button on , but you could make the strap much larger (length wise) then use the extra length to ale a bow.
That's it nice and easy and very useful
