Many years ago(35 or more)a neighbor gave me a pattern for a beaded jar cover. It was crocheted with an elastic cord or thread strung with faceted beads. Then it was stretched over the jar. There was a cover that went on the lid as well. The jar looked something like an apothecary jar. It made a pretty little jar/dish for one's dresser. Any ideas where this pattern might be found...or what to call it? Thank you

They are all very pretty and have inspired me to perhaps make the beaded one for when I get my craft room to put beads in it or other things....it looks alot like the one I had made back in the 70's but in macramé. I also remember seeing beaded ones with an elastic. If i come across it, I will put it up on the site. However, I make no promises because when we moved 2 years ago most of my books and stuff was given away to thrift stores due to space limitation. I did however, 'hide' some, it's all a matter of finding them now!! L0L!

Thank you crafty_grandma...it WAS the 70's when my neighbor gave me this pattern!! The "early" 70's, lol. I made quite a few for little gifts at the time.

Oh oh, sounds like one I made also. Can't remember how far back. Seems they are coming back. I also made button bracelets with elastic yarn but I think I crocheted them. My daughter is looking for a pattern for them, but I can't find what I want on the internet. Any suggestions from anybody?????

I have a leaflet (18 pages) called 'Buttons in Bloom", by Design Originals...that has some patterns for some cute projects to do with buttons....if you think that your daughter would like it, PM me your address and I would be happy to mail it to you. ( There are some bracelets in it...)

:D
