Iron the fabric to get rid of creases and wrinkles.

Look around the house for a round item which measures about 6” if covering a regular mouth jar or 7” if covering a wide mouth jar.

Place the fabric, wrong-side up, on a flat work surface. Place the round item on the fabric and trace a circle with a pen.
