Fabric covers for jam/pickle jars

I remember my mum's homemade pickle and jam jars with a cloth covers on it .. all neatly organized in a row on the rack..Now we have plastic and air tight containers which don't need the cloth covers as such...and plus people like me are too lazy to make jams and pickles at home..hmmm..Thats another topic which I need to focus some other day:) But for now I want to make at least my jars to look like my mums jars..So I made fabric covers for them!!

Let's see how to make them..

Cloth cover for jam jars

You need any scarp of fabric( cotton would be nice) , scissors, thread , some beads to decorate and a string .. You can recycle any piece of fabric in your home if you want. Place the bottle on the  fabric and cut it according to its shape a inch or two large than its size..

Tuck the border in with the help of pins and sew it along the shape.Sew some beads all around..

This is how it will look like after its done..!!

That is too cute. Jar covers are a lot prettier than the lids that come with the jars, much better looking.
