CASSEROLE CARRIER 

2 co-ordinating fabrics -21 1/2’’ X 27” of each 

¾ yd. Bosal or Insulbrite or plain batting 

(2) 3” rings 

 

 

From each of the co-ordinating squares cut a 21 1/2” square and a 3 or 4” X 

21” rectangle. 

Cut the same size square and rectangle from the batting. 

Place the 2 fabric squares right sides together. The Bosal will go on the wrong side of the piece of 

fabric that will be the outside of the carrier with the shiny side facing away from the fabric. Stitch a 

1/4” seam allowance leaving a hole to turn. I leave between 3 and 4”. Be sure to backstitch beginning 

and end of seam. Trim corners, turn and press or pin ( if using Bosal DO NOT press at this time, it 

shrinks!) seams along edges. Close hole using ladder stitch. 

Quilt the finished square.  Topstitch if you wish. 

Make the handle by placing the 2 rectangles right sides together and batting the same as you did on the 

square.  Stitch down the 2 long sides at 1/4”, trim batting out and turn. Topstitch and/or quilt handle 

piece. 

Lay quilted square on table with the right side up facing you. Place the handle right sides down so that 

it is diagonally opposite on 2 corners. Stitch 1/4” SA. Trim to 1/8”. Flip the handle over and stitch a 

3/8” SA. Diagram A 

On the opposite corners place the 3” rings and bring the wrong side through the ring so the lining is 

showing. Sew across the small corner of the contrasting fabric. Diagram B. 

Turn casserole cover so the right side is out and handles lay across the wrong side of the cover. Fold the 

corner with the ring to the middle and pull the handle through the ring. Repeat for the other ring

Apr 21, 2021: Fabric Flowers with Evelyn P. She demonstrated her techniques for making fabric flowers in many applications – jewelry, hair accessories, adorning purses, shirts, and home decorations and has provided a image of patterns for your use.  

 

“There are a lot of different ways to make fabric flowers and I have tried many of them. This one is my favorite. To make these flowers you first need to make fabric sandwiches. Any scrap fabric will do but you need fabric bond to put in between the front and back piece of fabric....that makes your sandwich!  Then you can cut out your flower pieces and construct your flower,  Evelyn”
