Canning Jar Covers

If you are lucky and your garden produced more than you can consume, remember your friends and neighbors who may not have your green thumb. Package your home made jams,jelly, pickles and preserves by decorating the canning jar lids with pretty fabric to turn homemade canned goods in to beautifully presented gift that is bound to be an appreciated gift.
Double the gift by sewing a buttonhole in the center of the fabric. Once the jar is empty, the recipient will have a bank for their kitchen windowsill.
