    I wish I could send you pictures but my casserole carriers are too large so I can only send the end with the spoon through it. Anyway, I am buying placemats at Big Lots that are already quilted and look like applique for $3.00. I am cutting a piece of double quilted fabric in a matching color the same size as the placemat. I serge around the quilted fabric so it will have finished edges. Then I put the two buttonholes in each piece, using the free buttonhole design for the casserole carriers that someone posted free on this website. Then I add straps, sewing them first to the bottom piece. Then I sew the two fabric rectangles together on three sides and put a wooden spoon through the two buttonholes to hold it together and I am finished. Cute as can be.

    Love your idea. Could you do a tut for those of us that are instruction challenged?

    Oh, Friends. Thank you for all the compliments. I wish I could send you a picture of the whole thing, but I only have a scanner and it will not scan as large as the carrier is. I took a picture with my cell phone, which turned out pretty good, but now I don't know how to get the picture from my cell phone to the computer. If I can ever figure all of this out, I will be glad to send a bigger, better picture and I'd be happy to do a tut, although the original message pretty much says it all.
    Thanks again,
    Jo Ann

    Send the picture from your phone as a picture message to your email address. That's how I do mine when im to lazy to take the card out of the phone and put the card in the computer.
