When I saw this tutorial that the same blog did for making a cover for the quart jar - well, I threw out my nervousness about working with wool and the girls and I jumped in with both feet.
The kids really loved playing with all of the different colors.
And the designs on the girl's jars changed several times. Hannah didn't end up with a smiley face on her final design.
The felting process took longer than I thought it would.
Ains gave up, so Gray took over for her.
Since I've never felted before, it was a steep learning curve. There were a few areas on Ainsley's that had to be stitched together and there's a spot on the bottom of mine that's thin. Hannah's, however, is pretty near perfect. Here they are before they got trimmed and stitched.

And we love them - and use them - as much as I thought we would.
