Advent calender day 5

Its day 5 here at the free pattern advent calender and I'm still thinking of lovely things to make as gifts for your friends and family or just as a special gift for yourself.

this patter is for lace jam jar covers. Prettying up jam jars makes them perfect storage for your crochet hooks and pens and pencils. I have three of these on my desk I love making them so much and I like having somewhere pretty so store things.
