Some time ago whilst blog surfing I came across a blog Adventures in Dressmaking and I was inspired by a photograph on her blog of these decorated bottles. Click on this link. Thank you for the inspiration.
My friend has a son who is a missionary in Kiev, and he is entirely self funded. There is a fund raising sale table for Mother's Day shortly and I got out some soy candles (in glass jars), hessian (recycling at its best, I cut off from unused carpet when I recently recarpeted), lace and ribbons and went to town with my inspiration picture above. I did not use any glue and I hand stitched the lace to the hessian and then handstitched the wraps at the back. For sale I added care information on the use and display of candles.
I also put in the package of goodies some greeting cards I have made. Good luck Linda with your fundraising.
