Embroidery: Jam jar cover

Gift giving is taken to a lovely new level with this simply crafted cover for jams.

Everyone loves to receive homemade jam or jelly as a gift. Why not make it that bit more special with a hand-embroidered cover? Secure with a pretty gingham ribbon to complete the feel of country charm.


This embroidered preserving-jar cover is the gift that will keep on giving! When well-crafted, it can be re-used and re-gifted for many years to come.
