A Merry Dove – Jar & Candle Wrap


A Merry Dove – jar and candle wrap

– A sweet, dimensional dove to adorn your Christmas table, designed to tie around an 8 – 9cm diameter jar or decorative candle. Appropriately sized to suit a small mason jar or 100gm coffee jar.

– This merry dove is embellished with embroidered swirls, felt holly and double-sided fabric stars. The holly and stars are only attached with central embroidery, allowing them to sit up a little from the background. This adds a further dimensional feature to the design. Braided embroidery thread finishes this piece, tying the dove together at the front.

– The “A Merry Dove – jar and candle wrap” pattern includes a full sized pattern sheet and an abundance of photographic and illustrated instruction.
