It easily holds a dish up to 9” x 13.” The larger dish in my photos is 10” x 14” and it is a very snug fit!

What you will need:

– 1/2 yard of cotton fabric for the exterior – 1/2 yard of cotton fabric for the lining – 1/3 yard cotton fabric for the straps – 1/2 yard of insulated batting (I used Insul-bright batting) – 1/4” wide Steam-a-Seam fusible tape for closing the opening (optional) – a fabric marker or tailor’s chalk for marking lines on the carrier – a walking foot (or dual feed foot) for your sewing machine – optional but highly recommended – an acrylic ruler, rotary cutter and cutting mat, pins, and coordinating thread

The 1 1/4” wide straps wrap all the way around the carrier to make it sturdier and prevent them from coming off even after lots of use!

I’ll show you where to sew bar tacks so the sides will be sewn together securely too.

Did you know that Insul-bright insulated batting can keep food items cold too? Just place a cold pack under the dish to help is stay chilled.

Will you sew my casserole carrier to take to your next picnic or to give as a hostess gift? Either way, let’s get sewing!
