Felt Jam Jars
by Laura Bray
- Fruit colored felt
- White felt
- Tulip Fabric Markers
- Sewing supplies
- Embroidery kit
- Wave rotary cutter
- Cut two pieces of colored felt, measuring 3" x 5".
- Quilt the front of one of the pieces in a diamond pattern.
- Using fabric markers, trace around the inside of the diamond patterns. This gives the felt dimension and produces shadows to create the look of cut glass.
- Cut a circle of white felt for the label and embroider it with the name of whatever you are "preserving". Sew onto the piece of quilted felt.
- Place right sides of felt together and stitch a 1/4" seam around three sides. Leave top open.
- Stuff 3/4 of the way full with stuffing.
- Cut out a 2.5" x 2.25" square from white felt.
- Using a wave rotary cutter, cut along one of the long edges of felt.
- Lay the white rectangle on top of the purple jar, with the top edges even. Pin in place.
- Sew the rectangle onto the jar, making sure the stuffing is below the rectangle.
- Sew additional quilted lines to about halfway on the white rectangle. These will give the appearance of a threaded rim on the jar.
- Allow wave cut side of rectangle to billow out, unsewn, to create the look of a fabric jar cover.
