Casserole Carriers

So here we are, the end of November. . .
Christmas gift making has begun which leaves little to blog about.

But these should be safe.  They were made for someone else to give as gifts this season.
It's a casserole carrier, the instructions for which can be found in the book "One Yard Wonders".
It came together quite well. The instructions were clear and simple. 
The fabric is one I've had in my stash for a while and just never had quite the right project for.  I think it works well for this because it's pretty but it's busy enough that if you get a little food stain on it it's not going to show.
There is a layer of thermal batting in between the outer fabric and the lining. It's the same stuff used for hot pads so it will keep the dish warm inside without transferring much heat outside.  It makes the carriers somewhat stiff but they should soften up a bit once they are washed.

Quite a useful little project and a great gift for the cooks on your list!
