Bell are ringing
Bird are chirping
The alleluia is at full blast
I'm happy to announce that I am finally finished with my most recent project. It's a casserole carrier. We go to a few cookouts in the winter months and numerous ones in the summer. I saw this and was inspired to make one for myself.
Here's the final product. Isn't it pretty?
I also made mine slightly different since I wanted long pieces to wrap around. I ended up using a lot of velcro. It makes a nice sturdy seal so no heat will be escaping.
I did end up spending lots of time with my seam ripper. I had to rip our the top stitching because I ran out of thread. Then more seam ripping because I put on the one handles wrong. I accidentally ripped out the correct handle so then I had to put that back on. OMG, so much seam ripping. I thought I would never finish.
Anyone who is new to sewing, I tell them to just start sewing. If you mess up, just tear it out! Anyway, I live by that when I sew. I do try to minimize the ripping, but it usually doesn't ruin your project if you sew something wrong. Just rip it out and try again.
The result of all the ripping and sewing is this beauty. I honestly want to make another since I now have the hang of it. It would make a great bridal shower gift!!
