  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Remove jar lid and place it on fabric for tracing – trace a circle around lid making fabric circle at least 1 to 1-1/2 inch larger (all around) for stuffing and tucking.
  • 2
    With hand sewing needle and thread, hand baste stitch a large and loose stitch close to edge of circle.
  • 3
    Tighten thread a little to create a “pocket” for stuffing and fill it in with polyfil.
  • 4
    Place flat part of jar lid inside this fabric pocket and tighten the fabric by continuing to pull thread.
  • 5
    When fabric is tight enough and desired look of “dome” is achieved, tie a sturdy knot in thread and cut.
  • 6
    Glue down edges of fabric to the flat center lid piece.
  • 7
    Cover the stitching and gathering of the fabric on bottom of lid with an additional piece of fabric smaller than lid and glue in place.
  • 8
    Once glue is dry, slip the outside of lid over fabric dome and screw on to top of jar.
  • 9
    Create a coordinating piece of "ribbon" by cutting a 2 inch x 26 inch piece of fabric. Fold fabric in half lengthwise and iron in place to create a crease down middle. Open back up and fold both ends of strip in to create a pointed triangle – iron in place. Fold length of fabric in again toward middle crease and iron in place. Fold again until you have a quarter-inch width of “ribbon.” Add an even layer of glue to inside of ribbon and press flat with fingers. Let dry and tie ribbon around Mason jar.
