Make your homemade jam even sweeter with a cross-stitch cover

What you need...
  • Fabric: gingham, pink; waste canvas, 14 count
    Stranded cottons, various
    Needle: tapestry, size 26; sewing
    Button, small
    Elastic band, covered
    Ribbon, blue
    Pinking shears
  1. Draw a circle on the back of pink gingham fabric, 8cm, and cut out with pinking shears. Fold into four to find the centre point, then cut a small piece of waste canvas and tack into place at the centre of the cover.

  2. Stitch one of the flowers from the chart onto the waste canvas, using two strands of cotton. When complete, remove the waste canvas thread by thread. Press and add the button to the centre of the flower. Attach the fabric using elastic and cover with tied blue ribbon.
