Kara's gift {etched pan and casserole carrier}

Today we got to celebrate my brother's upcoming wedding to Kara with an awesome shower thrown by my aunts.  Since I left my camera on the table next to something else I was supposed to bring, pictures of the actual shower will have to wait until my cousin posts a few.  But I couldn't wait to show off Kara's gift.
My go-to wedding shower gift is a set of Pyrex pans.  I don't care if most brides don't have them on their registry, because they should.  I use my Pyrex pan several times each week and love that it has a lid making it easy to transport.  I love to etch the pans with the couple's last name (see a more detailed post on that here).  I etched her pans on the side with "hoerr" and a flower and then did cute little flags on the bottom.

But then I went all Pinterest crazy.  One night while I was making birthday party lists in my head, lying in bed, I had the urge to check Pinterest for something else to add to Kara's gift.  And I found this (and this) tutorial for a casserole dish cover. Can you say perfect!  It was a little intimidating as I'd never sewn with insulation material or the belting.  But it turned out adorable, if I don't say so myself.  It folds up on itself and then insulation material keeps your dish warm.
I made an oven mitt to go along and I added spatulas and towels that she registered for to complete the gift.  Wasn't that fabric a perfect match to her towels.  Swoon.   
Long live the pot luck!
all wrapped up


  1. That is an awesome gift! I'm sure she'll use it many many times.

  2. It was an awesome, creative, genius, and thoughtful gift, Emily! I *love* it! Thank you so much! And yes, I'll get much use out of it. :)

    1. Aww you're too sweet! You are so welcome. I'm lucky to be getting such a great sis-in-law!
