Easy Crafts: Make a Mother's Day Vase Cover

1) Measure the circumference of your vase and add 1-1/2″. We used a wide-mouth Ball jar that is 4-1/2″ tall and 10-1/4″ around.

2) Cut 2 pieces of fabric that are 3″ tall x vase circumference + 1-1/2″. We cut ours 3″ x 11-3/4″.

3) Cut fusible interfacing 1/2″ smaller than the fabric. Ours was 2-1/2″ x 11-1/4″.

Center and apply interfacing to WS of one piece of fabric.

Stitch all sides with a 1/4″ SA leaving a 1-1/2″ opening on a short end for turning. Be sure to backstitch at the beginning and end.
