    I used one of my favorite tools, my Fiesta ware as a template. (about a 6 inch diameter) to cut a circle out of a scrap of card board.

    I then cut out a circle of sweater (This is Sweater Surgery doncha forget!) at about 12 inches in diameter and sewed a running stitch around the parameter and gathered it over the cardboard circle.

    I then simply cut a scrap of sweater and wrapped a bit of batting in it and stuffed it into the lid. I hot glued the lid onto the base circle and added a strip of vintage trim around the lid.

    Green crafting all the way around festive and ecologically good!

love it.

My Mama used to make these. She would add a flower at the bottom of the lid part.
