Bathroom towels are usually the go-to item for transporting a hot casserole or side dish to or from a party. That's all well and good, but why not put that sweater hiding in the back of your closet to use? Check out this quick and simple way to deliver a dish in style that even has built-in support and temperature control!

This casserole dish cover or cozy came from Diane Gilleland from Craftypod.com. She whipped up this cool cozy for our friends at Craftzine and all we can say is she's really solved all the problems of transporting casseroles.

In the bottom of her cozy she's made a pouch that holds a cutting board so when things are carried you have support on the bottom of the dish and you also won't burn your hands if it came straight from the oven. Likewise you could put ice packs inside it in summer to transport things like deviled eggs to a picnic!

The whole thing is lined and velcro flaps are added, along with a little embellishment to make it pretty. It's a great project for a slow evening and would make an awesome gift, especially if you have the time to make a full set of sizes for large to small baking dishes. Check out the full tutorial over at Craftzine, because we're pretty sure you'll never go back to using a bathroom towel again!
