Is this your water? Is this my drink? How many times does that question arise? Is this yours, is this mine?
I made these candy jar wraps a couple of years ago or so based on a mug wrap from the book "I Believe" by Nancy Halverson.
I re-sized Nancy's pattern instructions to fit the candy jars and again now to fit the water bottles and a 12oz. drink can. I considered posting a tutorial for these wraps, but since it's based on Nancy's pattern, I'm thinking I might be illegal if I did that...don't want to be illegal.
These are going to be little Christmas gifts. I just needed to know the recipients favorite color. After that I was having the time of my life. These are really fun to make...and easy peasy too! Lots of the strips came from my scrap bins.

I found a roll of non-slip shelf liner in the kitchen section of Walmart. I cut and stitched a strip of that on the backs of these. They grip the plastic bottle and the aluminum can so the wraps stay put when they are picked up. It works great!
My recipients are getting "one". But me.....I need one here by my blog, one in the car, one in the other car, one by my sewing machine.....
Mom and I both need a Christmas one...
...and I have visions of Halloween...and there are so many color schemes and fabric collections.....
I do know that they'd be really cute with something appliqued on this strip pieced design too. But I like them just strip pieced...at least for now.
