I had asked them to save me jam jars from a certain brand for a recipe I was going to use for the dessert for this evenings buffet. They did such a good job saving the jars that I had more than double what I needed. What does one do with all those jam jars? Why start stitching of course! I made ort jars out of them...
We exchange gifts at these evenings. I gave them all a bandana and the challenge to make something from them. I was looking forward to seeing the ideas they came up with but more about that in my next post. Here is my gift wrapped up in bandana wrapping paper ready to give away. Want to peek inside???
I kept the bandana whole and created a casserole carrier. I simply sewed backing and batting together with the bandana and then machine quilted it. I needed it to be strongly stitched so it can be tossed in the washing machine over and over.
I found a really pretty white casserole dish to add to the gift. After all a girl can never have too many casserole dishes, can she?
