There’s nothing more irritating than lugging around your bag of groceries and bulk food, or your lunch bag, and hearing the clank of mason jars against each other. I’ve frankly gotten tired of being a tuneless one-woman band, so I decided to make so travel bags/cozies for my mason jars.
What you need:
- an old men’s flannel shirt
- fabric scissors
What to do:
- Check that the jar fits in the sleeve when buttoned up. You should still be able to unscrew the lid with the cozy on.
- Measure where you want to cut, about one to two inches below where the jar sits when it’s in the sleeve. It’s better to cut a little extra than to be short.
- Cut the sleeve, trying to keep a straight line. It’s okay for this to be a little uneven and messy, though.
- Keeping the sleeve-let right side out, sew along the bottom. It doesn’t matter how neat this is, as long as it will stay.
- Turn the sleeve right side out.
- Place mason jar inside, button up, and turn down “collar”. Enjoy your noiseless, well-dressed snack or drink!
You can use the rest of the flannel to make rags, unpaper towels, dryer sheets, etc. I buy mine for about $3 each from my local thrift shop.
