Fabric Bow Mason Jar Gift by Craftaholics Anonymous

 
DIY Fabric Bow for Mason Jars by Craftaholics Anonymous
 
Hey there Crafters! This is Linda, the addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous. I was ecstatic when Kari asked me to come play today and to share a Christmas Gift idea! I thought I'd share what Davis, {the hubs} and I are giving to our friends, neighbors, and co-workers for Christmas this year.
 
My spin on the classic 'mix-in-a-jar' gift:
Hot Cinnamon Milk mix.....Aretha Franklin style! :)
{gotta luv them big bows! remember her drool worthy hat at the inauguration?}
 
 
 
What's not to love about a sweet fabric-bow adorned jar? seriously.
 
 
These are super easy to make and you can even use your scraps to make them.
 
Supplies
  • fabric
  • scissors
  • and that trusty sewing machine!
  • TEMPLATE {Click to view the bow template. Print on 1 sheet of paper. Template should be approx 10.5 inches long by 3 inches wide at the widest part}
for each bow, cut 4 pattern pieces using the template.
take 2 pieces and with right sides together sew together using 1/2" inseam. leave small end open.
*leave the small end of the pattern open so you can turn it right side out later*
when sewing around the curved portion of the fabric, go slowly so you can get a nice rounded seam.
next, make small cuts into the fabric about 1/4" apart around the curved portion. DO NOT cut the thread!
REPEAT above steps with the remaining 2 pattern pieces.
using a dowel or blunt scissors, turn right side out and iron flat.
take one side and tuck in the unfinished seam about 1/4"
insert the raw edges of the other side into the opening.
so that it looks like this.
sew shut.
then fold over that same seam....
and sew across it.
 
And that's it! This template works with all regular mouth glass jars.
 
 
Add this adorable bow to your jar and your gift is ready to go! *stop by my blog, Craftaholics Anonymous to get the recipe for Hot Cinnamon Milk mix. {this stuff is SO delish! it's like eggnog, but without the eggs  and a lot less calories!}

Happy {holiday} Crafting!
