    I use 4oz. quilted canning jars for these. I found the jars at Walmart and couldn't pass them up, they were just too cute. :D :-D I am having so much fun making these.

    Thank you for looking!!

    Thank you!

    They are so easy to make. I made all these in 2 days with maybe a total of 5 hours. Having a little one around means I am up and down all day.
    PS#2-Were they hard to make?? or Easy Peasey?

    Thanks again.

    There is a tut on line for ones similar to mine. I will have to find the link for you.

    I made mine before I knew there was an online tut so mine are made differently.

    I vote for chocolate :thumbup:

    Those are too cute, I have some of the same fabrics too. How big a piece did you need?
