Metal Cap Fabric Cover Tutorial

I heart anything that starts one way and can end up another.  Above is a picture of my glass jars that once held baby food and sweet, delicious peaches.  The larger jars come in a pack of 4 with peaches at Costco and the smaller ones are your standard baby food jars. 

What you'll need:
Sewing Machine
#11 needle
Scrap fabric
Jar Cap
Tacky Glue
Any color thread
Pencil for Tracing
Rubber Bands

I've recently finished the wall decor in my sewing studio and one big project was shorting out all my buttons color wise.  Below is a tutorial for Fabric Covered Caps.

Step 1:
Trace bottle cap on wrong side of fabric.

Step 2:
Eye ball and cut 1 inch, or more, around your bottle
 cap tracing.

Step 3:
At your sewing machine, choose a Zig Zag stitch with a 3 length and 4 width, tension @ 6 and needle 11. This is for a thin cotton fabric; change accordingly.

Step 4:
Do a zig zag stitch all the way around.  Cut thread strings.

Step 5:
I used tacky glue, you could try hot glue but the fabric I used was very thin, and I was fearful of burning my fingers.

Step 6:
Place ground around edges and fold down access fabric.

Step 7:
Use small rubber bands to hold fabric in place overnight so glue can settle.

And that's it! Enjoy!! Have fun up-cycling.
