I posted this in the occasions and holiday section  for Mother's Day because I made this for my Mom for a mother's day gift. Thought you might would like to see it in this section to.
This link is for a round/oblong carrier, with tute.
I also made one to fit a 9x13 cake pan.

This one is made from recycled sheets, a bath towel for liner and there is wooden dowel across the long sides under the handle so that it supports and holds shape.

That's rather clever!  It would make a nice gift too - a casserole dish, full of yummy goodness and even a carrier to hold it.  Hmm... I might have to use this idea, if you don't mind Smiley

neat idea Grin

I wonder how it holds up if the load is not heaviest in the middle? Like a half filled casserole? Will it tip over to one side?
That could be fixed by attaching the handles to the "armpits" of the cross shape, so when it is folded up, the handles are attached to the four corners?

Does it help keep the food in the dish warm? I want an insulated carrier. It this works, then I might just make one instead of buying one  Grin

A few answers....
I haven't really noticed that it will "tip to one side 1/2 filled" because there is wooden dowl running lengthwise where the handles are and the handles are centered for balance (but  I hardly ever return with food). If it did try to go heavy on one end your dish is secured with the inner flaps that have tie straps. Thanks for bringing up that point.

This one does a pretty good job at keeping things warm because it's actually lined. This one is 3 layers thick. The top and bottom fabric and I lined it with a terry bath towel. So with the 2 layers of cotton fabric and the towel in the center it makes it pretty thick. I guess it would depend on your fabric/ lining choice as to how well it holds heat. I made this from stash on hand supplies (hence the recycled lining...hehhehe). These materials make it machine washable friendly too. Just remember to slide out the dowl before tossing in the wash.

Nice! This would be great for potlucks.

What a great idea, I'm going to have to make one. I suppose if one were really worried about the food staying really warm we could line it with that stuff used in oven mitts...

Awesome. Totally neccesary, but I never thought about making one. Would be a very nice bridal shower gift.

Love is patient, Love is kind, It does not envy; it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude it is not self-seeking it is not easily angered it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth It always protects always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres
