Ok just one more Hot Dish Caddy to go with the original I made a couple of weeks ago (link here)! I love my circle one but thought some handy carry straps would be a great little feature. I also needed a larger rectangle shape to carry my large rectangle dish out to BBQ’s, picnics or pot luck dinners. A double layer of flannelette was the lining of choice this time, rainbow stripes none the less!
I have been meaning to make some of these reusable bowl covers, for quite a while now. I too feel a little guilty every time I use plastic wrap…well not so much when I’m making freezer paper stencils mind you that has a purpose!
I recently saw a tutorial on fabric bowl covers on craft gossip which reminded me I need to make these. I love their design but decided there had to be an easier and quicker way.
So I decided to forgo the double layer and save time on sewing a casing for the elastic. I decided on PUL (I had some left over from my book bags) and thought a little leak protection wouldn’t go astray! Instead of regular elastic I used shirring elastic, I used to avoid this stuff like the plague but it really is very easy once you try it.
Now for the quick and easy tutorial!
