Have you ever encountered a jar that’s very stubborn and difficult to open? Well, you’re not alone, because I, too, like many others have experienced this numerous times before. I have tried different methods that I can find online and they were quite effective but most of them were a hassle until I found this sewing project by Notches Sewing on YouTube and decided to give it a try. It was super simple and easy to make, it was even done within just 8 minutes, and makes jar opening a lot easier. What’s even better is that you can sell this lovely fabric jar opener or give it as a gift!



  • Main fabric, any color, and print preferred
  • Non-slip drawer liner
  • Ruler
  • Marking pen, pencil, or chalk
  • Scissors or rotary cutter and a cutting mat
  • Needle and thread
  • Fabric clips
  • Sewing machine


Step 1

Cut the fabric into a square at 6.5 inches, then cut the liner to the same size as well, and place the fabric on top of the liner with its wrong side up. Make sure the edges are lined up, then mark 2 inches on any side for the opening, and clip all sides.


Step 2

Stitch them together with a ¼-inch seam allowance, then backtrack at the start and end of the mark, and trim the corners at an angle. Now, turn the piece right side out, then push the corners slowly, and then roll the seams nicely.

Step 3

Finger press the seams, then tuck the edges of the opening and topstitch with a 1/8-inch seam allowance. Continue to stitch all the way around, then topstitch diagonally on both corners to keep the fabric from sliding.
