Make a Mini-Lasagna/HotDish Holder for your Hittys!
On the left is the original holder b D'Marie Ewing
and our version (small) on the right.
Mrs. Plum thought you might want two sizes.
And many thanks to D'Marie for allowing us
to make a pattern of her really great carrier.
2--7" x 7" (app.) of fabric--smaller
2--9" x 9" of fabric--larger
14" of ribbon for handle--smaller
17" of ribbon for handle--larger
snaps or velcro strip
Needles and Thread
Trace your pattern onto the wrong side of one of your
This traced line is your sewing line.
Then, place the fabrics right sides together, and
place pins on the four corners and center,
to hold the two fabrics together as you sew.
Sew all the way around, leaving a 1" gap on one of the sides so you
can turn the piece right side out.
Cut out, and make sure to take a snip into the four inner corners.
Turn right side out. With a blunt object, such as
a wooden turning dowel, push the corners out.
DO NOT use a pencil, pen, or scissors to push the corners out. You will go right through
the fabric no matter how careful you are. No need to ask how I know this to be true.
Sew a thin hem all the way around the outside of the holder (not shown)
Then, sew the square shown above in dotted black line.
This is the bottom of your holder.
Sew the four outer lines, as shown.
Check your pattern for line placement.
Place the ribbon on the piece, as shown.
The arrow shows how to pin the ribbon down
Overlap the ends of the ribbon.
Sew with a straight stitch.
Finally, either add snaps
or a narrow velcro strip to the two
shorts ends, to hold the holder shut.
Tip: After I had the stitching all done,
I fold on the stitched edge,
and pressed with a hot iron.
