this project is based off the size of your particular casserole dish. The measurements will need to be filled in accordingly. These are guide lines intended to help you work through figuring out your own dimentions. they are by no means exact.
Step 1: What You Will Need
Lining less than a yard
Casserole dish with lid
Zipper (2 x width )+length + 3"
or zipper off the roll works well, less than a yard needed.
webbing yardage needed is (Width x 6") + (depth x 4") + 2" for join *a little extra is good.
Step 2: Getting Started
Cut 2 rectangles from main fabric using the measurements length + 2" by the width + 2".
Cut 2 long and thin rectangles the length of zipper +2 by depth + 1" from main fabric.
(There is a bit of wiggle room here. its very hard to get an exact on this before you sew.
Cut these 2 pieces next to each other so the repeat on the pattern looks better. )
Cut 1 rectangle length + 4" by the depth + 1 1/2" . You can cut a lining piece this same size at the same time.
Step 3: Cut Lining and Batting
Step 4: Assembling
Step 5: Baste
Trim batting and lining to match face fabric . this is much easier then keeping the layers straight and from shifting if all 3 were the same size.
Step 6: Zipper Time
Baste close to the raw edge on the long side.
Pin fold to the zipper and one on the other side of the zipper. Give yourself some room. No need to be very close to the zipper here. Check the print to see if the design is lined up.
Stitch very evenly along the fold, then repeat for other side of the zipper.
Use a zipper foot if you need to.
Step 7: Baste Again
Step 8: Attach to the Zipper Panel
Step 9: Zipper Panel Attached to Top.
the seam you just made will be even with the long side of the rectangle. Sew in place using a 1/2" seam allowance. stop stitching and back-tack 1/2" from the end of the side indicated by the purple dot.
Step 10: Snip
Step 11: Turn the Corner
Step 12: Making the Join
Take the unattached non-zippered part for the panel and pin it along the remaining long side towards the corner. pin along the short side at the corner. once you have determined where they should meet sew them together along this short side. Trim off any excess fabric to a 1/2" then you can continue to attach the zipper panel to the top.
Step 13: Time to Flip Over to the Other Side
Step 14: Clean Up the Mess
Step 15: Attaching the Webbing
Press open seam and place raw edges face down as shown. Arrange in a comfortable balanced position for your dish. the seam and the half way mark shout be parallel. I put them in the center. Once you are happy with the placement open the carrier and stitch the webbing down along each side only on the bottom of the carrier.
