Squatch in a Jar

You know it's Christmastime when you bring out the ole 'Squatch in a Jar'.
Ah, the traditional childhood holiday memories our daughter will treasure.

I'm sure this is just what Ball had in mind when they made their giant mason jars.

Happy Holiday preparations!

Free Printable Gift Labels for Crocheted Christmas Dishcloths

I crocheted for years before I made my first dishcloth... now I cannot imagine my kitchen without one. Oodles of free patterns are available and you can make them as open or dense as you like... everyone has their own preference. Once you start using them you'll be hooked. Just be sure you use 100% cotton.

They make wonderful wee gifts and are easy to work on throughout the year when you have time for a small project or want a take-along to the office or in the car. They fit perfectly into a stocking; use a cute label and you won't even need to wrap them!

I print on kraft paper or kraft cardstock for a sturdier label. Set your printer to 'no margin' or 'full bleed' to get the border right out to the edges of your paper. Use the best quality printer and settings for a crisp label. I use my trusty rotary cutter, quilter's ruler and cutting mat to slice them apart but a paper cutter or scissors work fine. 

My labels are for personal use only. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful holiday season.
