Comfort and JOY Guest Joanna from Germany with - Shape Moth with some PP Jars...( screech, inner voice)

Hi everybody :) I'm Joanna from Shape Moth blog. Madame Samm asked me to prepare a tute for you using my Jar PP pattern (you can find free downloadable pattern HERE). The pattern is in pdf, but for those who prefer to work with jpegs, here's the jpeg (you would need to increase the pattern to fit to this project; how much? It's up to you):


I decided to make a cup coaster (actually, I will make a set of cup coasters, just didn't manage to do it now). 

Print out the pattern and sew the jar using your favourite fabrics. I used some Christmas themed fabrics, cause a set of coasters can be a nice Christmas gift. Trim the fabric around the jar (while sewing the jar I aded some more fabric around). You can resize the pattern as you wish. My coaster measures 6"x6":



Add batting. I used iron-on fussible interfacing, but you can add whatever you have of course:



And choose the fabric for the back of your coaster:



If you have some fabric adhesive you can spray the backing fabric, but you can also use pins and attach the back fabric for a moment:


Sew around the jar to enhance the design and to bind all the layers together:




Attach a piece of ribbon to the back of the coaster if you want it later to hang somewhere: 


Now it's time for binding. 



As shown in the tute from the link, finish the binding with invisible stitch:




And the Christmas coaster is ready: 



Hope you like the tute :) Thank you for letting me share with you today!

  7. sooo cute, great idea to outline like that... and how do you invisibly stitch the binding on? by hand? that's what I do with quilts, but often with pot holders I want something quick but it's not accurate....
    SEHR GUT..... DANKE

  8. Oh those jars are just delightful! And having a box to spray your spray baste in was an idea that caught my eye. That stuff is soooooo sticky and I hate to get it on anything that I don't really want it on.. YAY!! Love the tutorial.

  14. What a sweet little Christmas jar, I love it! A little hot pad and a jar of homemade jelly with the same fabric tied around the lid would make a great gift for friends. Thanks for the pattern!

  17. This is darling! I especially like the little triangles at the top of the jar -- it's sweet little details like that, that make pieces like this so special. This will be a fun one to try - thanks for sharing! :)
