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.😁

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.

The pattern is reversible with optional pockets and even a loop to hang a kitchen towel so you always have one on hand when cooking.

The Hailey Reversible Apron Pattern

Looking for a reversible apron pattern for yourself, gift giving or to sell physical aprons? The Haley Apron is now available on Etsy – CLICK HERE to buy now

The Hailey Reversible Apron Pattern is a 14 page digital pattern to create a versatile and reversible apron.

Tested and detailed instructions include lots of photos and diagrams to help you along the way.

The apron features my Bee’s Life Fabric collection designed for Riley Blake Designs but is not required. That’s the beauty of sewing right – you pick the fabrics that are exactly what YOU want! 🙂

There are so many things to love about sewing aprons instead of searching the stores and the internet – the #1 thing to love is that you can make exactly what you want!

From fabric choices to features – the choices are up to you. Pick the fabrics that match your kitchen, your personality or both. 

Add pockets to one or both sides or skip them all together. Add or skip the loop to hold a towel (I know some people put it in the pocket but I LOVE this feature!!) 

These make great gifts too – once you make one they come together quickly and easily!

If you are still turner long strips of fabric with a safety pin – watch the video below to see why Fabric Tube Turners are my absolute favorite!!

Order a set of Fabric Tube Turners from Amazon! (this is an affiliate link, if you click and purchase I’ll earn a small commission – it helps support my blog and all the free info and projects)

I hope this helps inspire some sewing!
