Daisy Project #2
Directions are for an Insulated Food Carrier
1/2" seam allowances throughout
Will hold a 9 x 13 dish
First: CUT YOUR FABRICS:
From the fabric cut: Two 44" X 11" pieces - these will become the flaps
Two 30" X 15" pieces - these will become the handles
From the Insul-Bright cut: Two 44" X 11" pieces
Two 30" X 15" pieces
From the Velcro tape (sew-in type) cut: Two 7 " strips of the loop side
Three 4" strips of the hook side
Lay ONE of your 44 x 11 inch pieces of fabric on the table with the Right side of the fabric facing upwards.
From the RIGHT SIDE edge - measure in 7 inches towards the left and place a pin to mark the location. Lay one of the 7 inch velcro pieces in the center of the spot you marked with a pin. It will look like the picture below. Sew the velcro in place. Next, sew the second piece of velcro 2 inches to the left of the first velcro strip.
Lay the second piece of 44 x 11 inch fabric on the table with the Right side of the fabric facing upwards also. This time, measure from the LEFT side edge 2 inches, center a 4 inch velcro strip and sew in place. Sew the other two 4 inch pieces of velcro 2 inches to either side of the first velcro strip you sewed. It will look like the upper side to the left of the picture shown below here.
NEXT: Baste the 2 pieces of 44 x 11 inch Insul-Bright to the WRONG sides of the two pieces of fabric with the velcro attached to them. When you are done, it will look like the picture above.
NEXT: You will sew (I suggest doing this by hand - unless you have a "walking foot" for your sewing machine) - the two parts together. IMPORTANT NOTE: Place the two 44 x 11 inch strips WRONG SIDES together (Insul-Bright pieces will be touching each other), BUT the Velcro on one piece of fabric MUST be at the OPPOSITE END of the Velcro on the other piece. (We will be sewing binding strips around the edges of these fabric pieces to finish off the edges - don't worry, we will be doing that later.)
