Every year during the holidays our family and friends will get together many times. Each couple or family is responsible for bringing a part of the meal. My family almost always brings a hot dish to share. I had been searching for a way to transport a hot dish that keeps the dish hot/warm but also keeps the inside of my truck fairly clean. I love this round casserole carrier. It fits a covered 2 qt round pyrex, a 8×8 square and a 2 qt rectangle pyrex.
There are many online tutorials, books and patterns to follow to make a casserole carrier. I have a book called One Yard Wonders where I found the basic pattern for a round casserole carrier. I like the simplicity of the carrier and after measuring your favorite dishes you can tailor the pattern to fit any of them. Simply measure the diameter of your dish plus the height and add 3″. That will be the diameter of the circles you will cut out. I layered the bottom circle with Insulbrite and the top “doughnut” circle with cotton batting. The outer fabric is Lost & Found Pink Damask. The lining fabric is Lost & Found Pink Round and the binding is Holly Jolly Gray Dots. I love that Jen’s fabric lines mix well and I love that I can use a Christmas line of fabric year round.
