Crafting my pants off!

I bought these cute mini bottles of ginger brew when my parents came to visit. I was really taken with the pretty green bottle, and kept one. I thought Id crochet a little cover for it and make a pom pom flower, using the same yarn as my ripple blanket.

However, Im not sure about it. It kind of looks a bit like a beer coozie. I fit it over a Bon Maman jar, and Im just as iffy about that use too. Which looks better? Jar or Bottle?

I like the jar one. Your right. The bottle one looks like a beer cozie.

What type of yarn did you use ?

I used a mix of Vanna's choice, and red heart soft yarn. The color combo is inspired from a set of vintage coasters my mother bought me.

Hmmmm. I really like the green bottle.  I just love how the color pops out against the lamp.  And the black pompom flower is so cool.  The jar is nice too, the cover fits it really well.  It could be a candle holder or something, and it would be nice because it matches the afghan.  Tough choice for you, you should just make another cover and have both!

Thanks everyone! I ended up putting it on a glass the same size as the bon maman jar, but without the lid threads, and I'm very happy with it now:) Always trust a crafter to have a good eye! Smiley
