Tutorial – Casserole Hot Pad

An Easy Tutorial. Make in any fabric combo for a great gift idea!

Hey! Guess who’s been hanging out at my house….

tutorial-6…..in October! I told him to go back to the North Pole, but he insists on staying around. 🙂

Below is a quick tutorial on how to make your own Casserole Hot Pad that I shared with you on Tuesday. Later I will have a printable version on the Tutorial tab above, but for now here we go:


  • 2 coordinating Fat Quarters, or 2 fabric pieces cut to 14″ x 17″
  • 2 pieces of batting, cut to 14″ x 17″
  • 1 piece of Insul-Brite, cut to 14″ x 17″
  • 2 – 2-1/2″ x WOF strips for binding

Step One

Layer materials: 1 piece of fabric wrong side up, 1 batting piece, Insul-Brite, 1 batting piece, fabric piece right side up. Pin or spray baste layers to make a quilt sandwich.


Step Two

Quilt as desired. Note: This is a pretty thick quilt sandwich, so I used my walking foot to sew straight lines one-half inch apart. I haven’t tried to quilt this on my HQSS, mostly because I really like the look of the straight lines.

Step Three

After the quilting is finished, trim the piece to measure 12″ x 15″.


Step Four

Join the two binding strips and press the strip in half lengthwise. You can find a detailed tutorial on perfectly joined binding strips here.

Step Five

Attach the binding using your preferred method. I sewed the binding to the front by machine and stitched in place by hand on the back.

Step Six

Enjoy your new casserole hot pad! These are quick and easy and fun to play with coordinating fabrics. Make lots of them as gifts for this holiday season. You can see I’ve already started!

  1. I’m looking for a casserole cozy, not a carrier. When I put a large rectangle Pyrex casserole dish right from the oven to the table, I would like to make something quilted to go around the dish and handles, making it easier to pass at family dinners. I sew a lot, but not sure how to cut out for the handles. Does anyone have any suggestions?
