Sew Easy Gifts ~ Quick Sew Jar Openers

I took a few minutes break from quilting for a hot cup of herbal tea and honey 
and to sew two of these 
Quick Gift Jar Openers
because I needed a couple of simple gifts for friends.

5 inch squares - 1 -2 -3
I had my walking foot on my machine which is what I like to use for these
and I decided the thread for my quilt
matched the gold in the fabrics just right.

I trim these after I sew and turn and use my
Clover 2 Point Turner
to push out the pints and smooth the edge seams.

I also do a quick press on the fabric side only
before I top stitch around the edges to close the seam. 
This is one of my most popular tutorials on my blog:

The back of these jar openers is no-slip


These make good no-slip coasters, too! 

It has been a really fun blog hop week seeing all the wonderful
Stitch It and Gift It Blog Hop
that I thought I would do some more stitching and gifting posts.

Time to resume my Quilting ... Quilting ... Quilting. 
This weekend I will be quilting This Project,
which will be featured on my blog in December
with a new free pattern release from Fat Quarter Shop.

Have a Happy Quilty Weekend!

Love this idea! Perfect small gift for my quilt ministry buddies. Thanks for sharing! said...

I have a jar opener that someone gave me. I have some of that stuff, that someone crocheted around the edge and I used it to keep my sewing machine pedal from moving.

These are great gifts and also if you are a show vendor they would make excellent sale items.
I have only used the no slip stuff to put under my dog's bowl. Bet there are a lot of other uses we have not thought of.
