jar hugs

I finished  these two jar baskets today, using  a
free pattern offered by Kelly Mueller of The Wooden Bear.
 for  Red Rooster Fabrics . The name on the pattern is Hugs and Holly, taken from their fabric selection I believe.( they show the following designs: Candy basket, Gingerbread basket, and cocoa basket patterns.)  
A new project for me to try and found it fairly easy to follow her directions and assemble these baskets. the one thing I would do again is use a stiffer stabilizer medium or flexible  plastic cut to size,  in the handles to  thread through inside the handle sleeve, to  hold their shape better.
I plan on filling these with candy this Christmas  for gift giving. The total time to make two was about 3 hours, so you can see it is a quick project, once you have your supplies together.
