    Didn't someone say that invention is the product of necessity or something like that?

    I need to find a cover I can fit a hot casserole dish inside to try and keep it warm for potlucks and what have you. I googled free patterns for them. About.com has one, but it looks like a fabric bowl you set the dish into. I suppose I could try and buy one at a department store, but I wanted to see if I could make one first.

    Does anyone know of patterns on how to make them?

    I've made several of these in both the 9x13 size and the smaller, round size - both styles - wood handles and rounded, with cloth handles. I attend a fair number of potluck dinners and have used my carriers, and definitely recommend the style with the wooden handles. The handles provide an extra bit of stability to the carrier.

    Like you, I searched for a pattern and found mine in McCall's Quilt Quilts November 2005. I've just tried to find a past issue on-line but failed, maybe someone else will have more luck. The pattern is similar to the gotfabric link. Here are a couple of pictures to help you out. I wanted mine to be flannel on the inside, so sandwiched and quilted my fabric before cutting it for the carrier.

    Once you look through the links above, you'll get the idea. If you have a favorite baking dish you often use for potluck recipes, no doubt you'll be able to figure out from these examples how to make one that works perfectly. I've made a round one, a square one (for a 9x9),and a rectangular one (9x13), so I'm ready for whatever dish I decide to take.

    The ladies on Sewforum have shown a lot of them they made from placemats. http://sewforum.com Look under show your projects.

    I bookmarked the got fabric one and I definitely downloaded the sewing mama one. THANK YOU!!!

    I'm not very good at google. I type in what I want, and it pops up with thousands of things I don't want. I must not be specific enough or something.

    You ladies that have them, or have made them, can you put hot packs in them to keep your dish hot? I don't really want to use that teflon ironing board fabric. Stuff's expensive and really slick.

    I make mine out of placemats. You just sew two placemats together on 3 sides and put 2 button holes on the open end for a spoon. I put velcro on the inside of the open end to close it. Very easy.

    Do you ladies know how good newspaper (multi-layers) is for keeping dishes hot? Our church begins at 9:00 a.m., and our "dinners" at 12:00 noon. Those who live too far away to make two trips have learned that if we wrap the dishes in several layers of newspaper and then place them in the carry-all, they will still be at serving temp (oven hot!) for the potluck.

    Newspaper works well for insulating cold items, too. If you are transporting those in a cooler chest, cover them with several layers of newspaper. I transported seafood from Louisiana to Colorado like this--a 2-day trip. The seafood was still frozen solid when we arrived--and in June, not winter.
