Sewing Tutorial: Pie Carrier Tote

pie carrier

I recently went to a potluck and saw someone bring a pie wrapped up in a pie carrying tote! I thought that was pretty nifty type of tote to carry a pie! This makes a nice holiday gift, especially if you brought a pie with it!

pie toteYou will need to measure your pie pan to see how much fabric you will need. My dish is a standard Pyrex pie pan, but you may need a little bit more fabric if you have a deep dish or a bulkier pan.

Finished Size 16″X16″


  1. Wash and iron your fabrics
  2. Cut an 18″X18″ square of each fabric
  3. Cut two 3″X22″ strips for the handle
  4.  Cut pieces of quilt batting, one 18″ square, and one 3″x22″ strip
  5. Lay square cotton pieces right sides together. Place quilt batting on top. Do the same for the strap.
  6. Sew all sides together of the 2 pieces, leaving a big enough hole to turn fabric to right side out.
  7. *Check to see if you need to trim cotton strap to size.
  8. Sew holes closed. Press.
  9. Sew a 1/4″ seam around the whole edge of the square and the strap.
  10. Quilt the square piece with a pattern you like. I simply sewed an X from corner to corner.
  11. Attach metal rings at 2 opposite diagonal corners by turning corner over ring and stitching down.
  12. For the other diagonal corners, attach cotton strap, one strap edge to each corner.
  13. To use, place pie under strap, centered on square. Fold the metal ring corners over the pie and over lap rings. Thread strap through the rings, which makes a loop handle.

    1. I actually found them at a garage sale! I think similar ones can be found at fabric stores. The only other place I can think of is a tack or leather shop.

  1. I made one for my daughter and made the (mistake?) of telling my sister. LOL. Now I have two ordered for her and a friend of hers.. Thanks for making it easy to follow your instructions.. Jack
