An Easy Sew Kitchen Jar Opener
Cut one 6" Square each of:
(or you could use a small quilt block)
The grip is made from rubberized shelf liner,
which is machine washable on cold and may be put in the dryer on low heat.
I found this easy to work with and am considering using it for coasters and non-slip table runners and maybe even slipper soles.
I assembly lined these and made several in an hour.
I like to pin the layers together with one pin on each side which I remove as I sew.
Make a sandwich by
placing the top fabric square front side up,
then the rubbeshelf liner in the middle
then the flannel or cotton.
Katniss supervised my work.
Trim the corners to cut down on bulk.
Turn right side out.
Topstitch around the square to secure all layers.
I used my walking foot and had no trouble feeding the liner through my machine,
I also tried stitching with the gripper liner up and this also worked well.
I have a couple of these in my kitchen drawer and use them all the time.
These are sew easy to make that soon you will
have a stack of nifty new giftys or bazaar table items.

My daughter and grand-darling are flying in today for an extended holiday visit ...
... which is the best Christmas present of the year!
I have been busy cleaning up my shared sewing space and tucking stuff in closets.
I hope to respond personally to all the kind words as soon as I have time ...
well ... when I am not cuddling the baby girl .... ;)
