I've been having a play with the jars that are for making your own jam and preserves. I've put them to a different use though...
They are the type with the lids that come in 2 pieces, I've spray painted the outer screw ring.
I covered the inner disc with some fabric and stuffing and it makes for a pretty pincushion jar, don't you think?
For something a bit different I crocheted a flower motif in fine cotton and gathered together the bits and bobs for another jar.
It's now added to my collection :0)
I quite like how the layered crochet flower one turned out.
I've also been doing a bit of cross stitch - this is my favourite jar. I love the font on this lettering design, I have the whole alphabet charts, from here.
a very fun, quick and happy project!!
'till next time...
