Mason Jars - Fabric Tags

I had a lot of fun making these little fabric Mason Jar tags out of muslin material.  Here's the way I put them together:
  1. First I stamped my Mason Jar stamp onto the muslin fabric with black Staz-on ink
  2. Second I layered batting and another piece of muslin behind the stamped image
  3. Third I sewed around the jar with black thread
  4. Fourth I cut the little tag out 
  5. Fifth I penciled on whatever sentiment I wanted
  6. Sixth I embroidered over my pencil design
  7. Seventh I colored over the entire jar with colored pencils
  8. Eighth I sewed a few matching buttons to the top left corner
These are now hanging in my laundry room on a mirrored "Home" sign.
I'm not finished with the room yet - I'll be posting more as I have time to complete my projects.
