How to Sew a Casserole Dish Hot Pad

Tara Reed with a Casserole Dish Hot Pad

The Gypsy Quilter gave me a Casserole Dish Hot Pad Kit with Pre-Cut Batting and Insulating Material to try when I was at the Missouri Star Quilt Co. Birthday Bash. I’ve made lots of microwave bowl cozies so I definitely wanted to give it a try!

SHORT STORY: I love it! I didn’t follow the directions correctly – but it worked out anyway.๐Ÿ˜

In this video I’ll walk you through what you get in the Gypsy Quilter Casserole Dish Hot Pad Kit and how easy it is to put together.

I’ll also show you where I went wrong and how I fixed it.

This is a great sewing project for beginners.

I’ll be honest and say I almost deleted all the video – thinking, “How can I share this when I didn’t do it perfectly?” Well… we all goof up from time to time, right? The key is to figure out how to keep going – and sewing – which I did.

These are not microwave safe. I love how you can flip them and use either side – so be sure to pick two fabrics you love.

In this example I used two of the fabrics from my Fall Barn Quilts Fabric Collection I designed for Riley Blake Designs.

The fall leaves and fall colored quilt block print are perfect for cool fall nights, Thanksgiving, taking a casserole to a pot luck and more.


Ask for my Fall Barn Quilts Fabric where you like to buy fabrics from Riley Blake Designs.

If you make and post any of these on social media be sure to tag me so I can see! Happy fall, happy sewing and happy casserole season!
