Casserole Cover: Ruby Star Wrap Along

Hi, Everyone! I told you I’d be back today with my version of this cute little casserole cover. This is such a fun and easy project.

I didn’t really know what to expect based on the picture in the book. It is kind of a sneak peek, but I am very happy with the result.

Covering this dish took about 1/2 of a fat quarter of two separate fabrics and a 2″ strip of a third for the tie. I think the entire process took me about 40 minutes, including quilting time.

This is a great way to dress up a plain plastic or aluminum dish when taking food as a gift to a neighbor, new mom, or someone who just needs a pick me up.

It’s also cute for covering a fun pyrex dish for a collector.

I always try and think up alternate uses, and this seems like one that would get used a lot in my family

Just wrap, insert a card to cover the opening and cinch it up. Wouldn’t this be cute under a Christmas tree?

I really love Melody’s book. This year I want to focus on wasting less and simplifying. I find giftwrap paper to constantly be in the way and hard to organize. This book has some really great ideas on how to make beautifully wrapped gifts without the waste using items that would other wise go in the bin. How cool is that?!

    I’ve been using yardage for a couple of years, but never modified it in any way, just bought lots of fabric ribbon to tie it with. I may have to sew in some drawstrings, use scraps to make wrapping “paper,” or some other fun ideas in this book!

    Hmm, I’ve got to check that book out–been looking for better ways to wrap and those furoshiki (or whatever) are driving me nuts!

    The cover is adorable. For the past few Christmases, I try to come up with at least one recyclable wrapping and tell the recipient they need to pass it on the next year. This is a great idea.

    What a cute casserole cover! I bet it could be modified, too, to work with varying sizes of dishes :) Love that you got the dish @ the thrift store – I use a sweet Fire King butter dish found @ a thrift store – I love checking out the glassware there!

    I love this! I hadn’t thought of using it for a new mom or hostess gift – i’ll have to remember that. It really is a great book.
