Mason Jar Sewing Kit DIY
What You’ll Need:
- Mason or Ball or Kerr Jar of any size (I used a small one)
- Piece of fabric large enough to cover the lid + some extra to tuck under
- Hot Glue
- Cotton Batting
First, unscrew the lid and separate the metal ring from the flat part of the lid. Lie the flat lid on the reverse side of your fabric scrap and draw a circle around it. Cut a circle about 1 1/2″ LARGER than the one you traced, so there will be room to tuck and glue, as well as enough fabric to stuff with cotton.
(Don’t worry, if there’s too much excess fabric on the inside, you can always trim it off later.)
Using a hot glue gun, begin squeezing a circle of glue around the lid, stopping every couple inches to fold and press the fabric down onto it. Slowly press your way around the lid using the end of a pencil to avoid burning your finger!
Leave a gap before finishing gluing your circle, and feed cotton batting into the hole until the pincushion is stuffed. (If you don’t have batting, you can use cotton balls!)
