Anyone know how to make this?
Hello Everyone, I went to a craft fair about a year ago and I seen a casserole carrier a lady made in which I wished I had bought one now. They were sqaure and had loop on each corner then you put the loops threw each other somehow and it ended up being a handle to carry this hot pad carrier for the casserole dish.They were beautiful gift for someone.
Does anyone out there know how these are made. I would love to know asap .Didn't look like too much sewing involved in it.
Thanks so much

I found several pictures of the Quilted Casserole Carriers,these are made from Quilted Placemats...

Casserole Carrier #1...
For a newly married couple or a family with a new baby, consider purchasing a 7"x11" casserole dish, and adding an incredibly easy casserole carrier/warmer as well.

To make the carrier, purchase a 12 1/2" x 17 1/2" placemat (find one with angled corners for a better finished look). You will also need eight 3/4" buttons and thread to match the placemat.

With the placemat wrong-side-up (you want the "pretty side" down - choose which side you like best and put that face down), center the empty dish on the placemat. For each corner, fold the edges of the placemat up and pinch them together. Place one button on each side of the pinched fold - then stitch the buttons in place to hold the corners together. You're done!

Casserole Carrier #2...
For a carrier that holds an 8"x11 1/2" casserole dish, you will need two 13" x 17 1/4" quilted fabric placemats, matching thread, three 7/8" buttons and three 3 1/2" lengths of 1/8" elastic.

Find the side of the placemat you like best, then place both of these sides together. Using your sewing machine or if sewing by hand use a running stitch or blanket/whip stitch, sew around the two long sides and one short side - leaving one short side open to allow the dish to slide in and out.

Sew buttons onto one placemat on the top - evenly spaced and 1/2" from the opening's edge. For each button loop, fold one length of elastic in half and sew the ends of the loops to the inside edge of the bottom placemat - 1/4 - 1/2" from the openings edge and directly beneath the buttons on the upper placemat. When the casserole dish is slid in, you simply pull up the elastic loops and slide over each button to hold in place.

The link below has a pattern for the Casserole Carrier made out of Kitchen Towels...hope these help...

This is all I could find. I really like the picnic set. My kids would love it. If I could find Americana material it might be marked down. Hum.......

I found several ways to make casserole carriers, even as a wooden picnic basket style to ones make from quilted placements to ones made by crochet to ones made from fabric and batting and dowel rods. I am added photos of some of I found as well as links.

I hope this helps everyone.

I got mine the old fashioned way, I bought it really cheap out of an LTD catalogue at work.

Casserole Carriers
I was looking for one that had the wooden ring handles, but all that I was able to find to this point has the design and instructions for the straight rod handles. I will put the address up, as the file is an adobe that won't let you copy and paste. I will look some more and let you know if I find the one with the wooden ring handles.
