Two Jar Lids


I like to give thank-you gifts to people who have done favors for me or have worked hard on behalf of the Association. I used to make little food gifts, but now I plan to make a lot of little jar lids and fill the jars with M&Ms, Skittles, cookie mixes, and other nice edibles. The pattern on the left is from an old issue of Cross Stitch & Country Crafts, and I have no idea where the other one came from. I had one "thank you" stitched that had been sitting around in my stash for 20 years, and copied the pattern onto some graph paper so I can make it again and again. I like the colors since they go so well with M&Ms and Skittles.

They are both wonderful. I like the thank you, too, and can see how it could be perfect for a lot of occasions. Do you put batting under the XS?

Those look awesome. And when it comes to M&M's, they sell them in my country too. I like the red package, that is, the chocolate ones.
