Hi, everyone! I am FINALLY getting back to my regularly scheduled posts! Well, sort of. ;) I'll post an update on personal stuff soon HERE or you can click on my Personal Blog link at the top of this page. :)
Sooooooo, with all the moving about my crafting has been put on the back burner with a few exceptions! I really can't go very long without doing something crafty. I saw this pattern at Joann's a few months back and I finally was able to get at it after borrowing a friend's sewing machine. Thanks Genny!!! :)
Isn't it beautiful? :) We do a lot of hosting so I couldn't help but take up the challenge to create such a cute casserole carrier! It is made with InsulBrite (an insulated lining that is used inside pot holders and such) Now, I must admit my sewing skills are NOT what I want them to be so my finished product looks a wee bit shabby...but it is what it is and I at least got it done! :) Plus, those corners were tough!
They were having a sale on their fat quarters so I chose a medley of coral and reddish hues for my fabrics. I will say that I read the pattern wrong and the fabric I wanted to show on the outside (the fun patterned one) had to be on the inside instead because I didn't have enough of it. Boo. BUT again, it's all good. It's cute enough. ;)
Here it is as it would look when holding a casserole.
Here with the handle flaps open, showing the utensil holder on one of the side flaps.
And here all the way open with a 9x13inch casserole dish inside.
So, there you have it! I have one more sewing project in the works that I hope to get started on soon!
Here is a sneak peek of the fabrics I will be using. Fun times!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
