Chrismas in August

My co-worker is always telling me to get started early on my Christmas gifts since she knows I make most of them. This year I'm listening, my go to gift this year will be the casserole carrier.

This was my test run, this is gifted fabric, I'm pretty sure it's as old as I am. I will probably keep this one for myself because I don't have the heart to give this to anybody.

The pattern doesn't call for the binding but I thought it needed it. I also added a piece of elastic to hold a spoon.
 I will give this one away, for this one I purchased coordinating quilting fabric.

I had the quilted fabric I used for the lining. I did find the teflon fabric but I would have to line it with batting and quilt it myself. Not feeling that at all.

Only 9 more to go. I'm going to try and do at least two a week but I'm sure I will get bored with them and sneak in some sewing for myself.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

What a useful and thoughtful gift. You are doing what we all say we'll do and never get around to it. I need one of those too.
