I received some nice insulated fabrics from Fairfield to try that are so beautiful they could be made into evening wear and accessories but since I don't attend many formal evening extravaganzas any more these were turned into a tote bag and a casserole carrier but won't they make  a hit at the next family gathering or church supper?

Patterns and instructions are included in the following links for the tote and carrier:


I made custom binding for each project since the fabric was so special and turned the camera on right after the strips were sewn together. Here is the link to that tutorial for a really quick and easy way to make your own binding. It only took a few minutes to make several yards for each  one.

Each project is only one pattern piece plus straps so they are easy to make. 


May the joy of crafting be upon you
