Christmas Star Jar Covers
Those two little stars from my other post have been transformed into these Christmas jam jar covers. And do you know what...? I do believe I have invented this! (Well, not jar covers in general - but these particular star ones).
I had the idea for this and thought they must be out there somewhere on the internet. I was sure I'd be able to find a pattern online, but nope! Couldn't find anything similar. (Not saying nothing exists, but I couldn't find it if it does!) So I had to work it out myself.
I found a free pattern for the star, but then worked out how to turn it into a circle, then into a jar cover with ruffle.
I think they'll be perfect filled with Christmassy sweets - I'm imagining little red and white candy canes...
I'm so pleased with how they turned out - exactly as I had pictured in my head. I especially love the ruffle and the pompom ties!
I think I'll write up a pattern for these, in case anyone feels like making some? They'd be great for Christmas presents, filled with some tasty treats!
Edited to add: Tutorial now available here!
Thanks for the comments on my post with the little stars. Chrissie, the cup and saucer are PiP Studio Chinese Rose in Khaki. I have a little cake plate to match the cup pattern. They were presents last year (and I'm hoping for the same in blue for my birthday or Christmas this year!)
