DIY Insulated Loaf Pan Carrier Using a Kitchen Towel

Are you tired of struggling to transport your freshly baked bread without it getting squished or losing its warmth? Look no further! With just a simple kitchen towel, you can create your very own DIY insulated loaf pan carrier that will keep your bread cozy and protected. This insulated carrier will help retain the heat of the freshly baked bread, making it perfect for picnics, potlucks, or gifting homemade loaves to friends and family. With this clever DIY solution, you can enjoy warm and delicious bread wherever you go!

Pre-wash your fabric and Insul-Bright so it won’t shrink later!

First, gather your supplies. 🙂 You will need one kitchen towel. Check your towel to make sure it’s the right size and fits all the way around your loaf pan with some extra for folding over. Mine was 23 inches long.

Next, you will need some Insul-Bright

Insul-Bright consist of polyester fibers that reflects either hot or cold back to it’s source. It is washable and feels like batting. It is heat-RESISTANT, NOT heat-proof so do not put it in the microwave. If you want to warm your loaf in the microwave or oven, remove the Insulated Carrier first.

You’ll also need matching ribbon, a needle with a wide eye, and matching thread.

First, fold your towel in half, right sides together. Cut one piece of Insul-Bright the size of your towel when it’s folded in half. Pin the Insul-Bright to the outside side of your towel. Sew the Insul-Bright onto your towel, sewing up three edges leaving the top edge open for turning.

Turn your towel right side out to look like this:

Fold in raw edge 1/4 inch and sew a hem. Then fold towel by bringing ends together. Place the end you hemed on top and sew together. At this point, your towel may be too thick to sew on your machine. If so, you will need to hand sew it.

Afterwards, it will look like this:

Thread a ribbon using a wide-eyed needle.

To get it through the needle cut the ribbon at an angle and put the very tip of the ribbon through the needle first.

Fold the top down about one inch. Pull ribbon through towel on one side, then back through the other side so that you can tie a bow. If it’s too thick and the ribbon will not go through the towel, use a pair of scissors to make a small slit so the ribbon will go through.

Congratulations! You did it!
