Mason Jar Cozy {52 UFO Quilt Block Pick Up}

Mason Jar Recipes are great holiday gifts.  They don’t require any cooking time…just stuff the ingredients and go.  I was thinking it would be kind of fun to dress up your jar just a little bit before you sent if off to your neighbors.

For this mason jar cozy I used one quilt block that I cut right in half.  I wasn’t too worried about this as the quilt block wasn’t done in the best of manners.  There were mistakes and some seams were off.  Do you have quilt blocks like that sitting around?  Those are perfect for this kind of project.

Materials needed:

Quilt Block 8″ X 8″ or one strip of fabric 4″ X 16″ {this size is really customizable- any size from 6″ – 9″ would work}

Flannel for the middle

2 Ribbons- 12″ & 24″

Backing- 4″ X 16″ -or customize if using a different sized quilt block

Mason Jar Cozy Instructions:

Cut your quilt block in half

Sew together to make a long piece

Cut backing and flannel the same size

Pin ribbons in the center of one end of the top piece

Layer the front and back- right sides together.  Pin on top of flannel

Sew all the way around the cozy, leaving a 2″ opening for turning

Snip corners and turn right sides out

Iron and hand sew opening closed

Wrap around jar and tie in bow

Depending on your quilt block size and the ending length when you sew them end to end, they will overlap where the bow is.  If the block is smaller, the wrap will be less or no wrap at all, which could be cute too.

I am sharing this in collaboration Craft Lightning -Holiday Edition.  All week long they will have some super easy but way cute projects that you can get done- lightning fast.

Mason Jar Extras:

Now that you have your jars all cute– it’s time to fill them up and get them labeled and ready to go!

Labels  for the lid {you can customize these! I was thinking the iceskating shoes with Happy Holidays on them}
