Casserole Carrier {or wedding present: part 1}


One of the things my darling friend is know for is her incredible hospitality. Be it at her own home or others, she always has something to share. So, I figured I'd add to her arsenal by making giving her a Pyrex dish with an insulated casserole carrier. 


I found this amazing little creation through Homemade by Jill. The pattern is from 2 Little Hooligans. I followed Jill's suggestion and used belting instead of handles. I'm glad I did. 


I'm just in love with the navy houndstooth. The inside fabric has little white circles on it which you can't really see in the pictures. Both fabrics were bought at Joann's. I think I'll be finding more things to do with the houndstooth!


I accidentally bought only 1/2 a yard of insul-brite when it calls for a yard. So I had to get a bit creative. As a result, the skinny piece only has the insul-brite on the bottom.


I think it worked out ok.

Be sure to check out this post to see what I did to make the Pyrex special!
