Don’t you love this quilted casserole carrier made by Bonnie at Fishsticks Designs? She used a frixion pen to mark the quilting lines that run vertically and horizontally, and says the hardest part of recreating the pattern was finding long enough wooden spoons to use as handles!
This versatile casserole pattern can accommodate a 9″ x 13″, 8″ square or 9″ square dish, thanks to the clever placement of hook-and-loop tape. To adjust the size, you can open the carrier, center your dish, fold the long ends and fasten with the spoon handles.
Carry your homemade dishes to picnics, parties and family gatherings in this stylish casserole carrier. A simple sewing project that can be sewn with just straight lines, this carrier can be quilted with batting inside for extra texture. The finished carrier will fit a casserole as large as 9″ x 13″.
