Casserole Carrier

Since I've had to borrow a casserole dish carrier from my mother-in-law several times in the last year, I figured I should probably just get my own. And since I'm due to give birth any day now, I didn't feel like looking everywhere for one. I came across two great posts that featured carriers and decided to make my own. I mostly followed the tutorial at 2 Little Hooligans with a few tips from Taylor Made.

Here's how mine turned out:

The original tutorial on 2 Little Hooligans used a dish with no handles, so I adjusted my cutting measurements to accommodate the largest dish I would want to carry. The idea for the cotton webbing handles and contrast inside fabric came from the post on Taylor Made.

My fabrics and the cotton webbing were all from Hobby Lobby, and I got Insul-Bright thermal lining from Joann's.

I made this late last week, just in time to take some goodies to a Super Bowl party. And oh, the goodies were good. I found some tasty morsels on Pinterest, and got a recipe for Bacon-Wrapped Smokies from Tasty Kitchen. (Sorry, didn't get a picture of the smokies, but Tasty Kitchen has a great pic of the finished product.)

I also decided to make Nutter Butter Cookie Balls, found on Pinterest, recipe from Simply Designing. Much easier than cake balls, these only have 3 ingredients and there's no actual cooking involved!

I added "football laces" by melting white vanilla candy melts (Wilton) in a ziploc, then barely snipping the bag corner. They are not perfect, but you get the idea!

I've been bookmarking and pinning recipes for a while, but don't always get around to making all of the wonderful foods I've seen out there. I'm glad I tried these two recipes. They were both so easy, and big hits at the party!

Yesterday, I made a gift for Caroline to "give" Annelise when the first meet. I'm due next Monday, so I'll try to get the gift posted here over the weekend. It's super-cute! Until then...

Happy crafting,

Being able to choose unique granite shades makes it less difficult to pattern or tailor using the overall color motif of the residence.
