|Call it what you like, but call it cute!
The first carrier I made was with this great flatware fabric with a bright orange interior.
I lined this one with the heat resistant Insul Bright. This stuff is a little stiff, but is designed to absorb heat, and easily found at the fabric store. It would be ideal for taking a dish to a potluck. We thought they could be really fun in school colors to take to a tail gate.
This carrier will definitely be used for the hot things. The Insul Bright makes this one a little thicker, and I am anxious to make a few pot holders with the Insul Bright too, I'l let you know how that goes. I am always on the look out for a good potholder!
The second carrier I made I used 100% cotton batting inside, like you would use for quilting. This is thinner, and it won't really protect from or insulate heat, but I thought this would be a great cookie or dessert carrier. My covered pie dish fits perfectly (but who has time to make a pie when there's cookies to frost!) I love the fabric, it reminds me of the discs we put inside a 45 record to play it on the stereo spindle.
If you are interested in making these, it will take you less than an hour, uses less than a yard of each fabric, and requires no special sewing skill, honest.
