Free Motion Quilting :: Embellished Mason Jar Tutorial

Check out this jar that I embellished. So cute, don't you think?

IMG_2984 Actually, I embellished three jars ... one for faith, one for hope, and one for love.


For the FAITH jar, I started experimenting with free motion stitching by layering batting with ledger paper. After stitching circles, I wondered what it would look like if I opened up some of the circles. I liked it very much.
IMG_2989 So then I wrapped the stitched piece around a Mason jar and then secured it with hemp yarn.

IMG_2991 I free motion quilted the words onto a sandwich of muslin, batting, muslin.

IMG_2985 And then took needle and thread to attach more hemp yarn to the quilted words.

IMG_2986 IMG_2987I spray painted all the lids with black spray paint. Added batting and papers in assorted ways on the other jars, and then wrapped the quilted words on the jars' necks.

IMG_2994 Faith, hope, love. And the greatest of these is ... love. No doubt.

Happy free motion quilting.

Happy crafting. :)

I have been playing around with your 'Mason Jar' stamp set. It was my DT set of stamps for Wendy at the Stamp Attic, UK.

Perhaps you would get to see them sometime.

Have a lovely week

(It was I who made the little dresses which you featured in your gallery.)

You used very simple supplies but the results are simply elegant. You could make a banner (or some call it bunting) out of the words and string. That would be cute too. Can't wait to see what you come up with tomorrow! Your blog always makes me smile.

lovely, uncomplicated & classy...you inspire so many jenny! ;)

Those jars are so cute! I can't imagine being able to sew a word but I'll have to give it a whirl.
