This post is all about my love for Mason Jars!
I haven't got a clue why I like them so much, but I think its the endless possibilities you have for usage and their look when sketched. I saw them so very often over the past three years when I tried to teach myself how to sew with tutorials from the blogger world - Modge Podge them, use them as invitations for weddings, make candles out of the glasses and hang them in the garden with wire wrapped around... as I said, endless. But once I saw a sketch and I fell in love. Simple lines, messy on top, yet symmetrical. *l*o*v*e*
So I added my own touch to them and started to draw them with my sewing machine. At first I wasn't sure with the lables stuck on them, if they are needed, if I should ass the writing 'mason jar' or not... argh! And when I think too much, nothing works out anymore. So this is what I ended up with:
A mason jar for collecting Luck (Glück in German).
A mason jar for collecting Love (Liebe in German).
A mason jar for collecting moments, not things!
....and new in my collection: mason jar bag charms/tags. They are so much fun to sew!!
So, that was my attempt to explain my love for mason jars... years after the hype is over! But that's just me - I don't like to follow hypes and realize only later that the trends actually were pretty neat, once I added my own touch to them...
