You know those moments when you’re in a store and you see something insanely cute and insanely expensive and you think to yourself, I could make that? This is one of those moments.
I was in one of my favorite stores recently and saw a gorgeous little mason jar sewing kit. It cost more money than it had any right to, so I came home and made one. The only thing that I was missing were the beautiful little scissors, which I picked up at my local craft store. So let’s make a mason jar sewing kit.
Gather your materials.
- mason jar
- glue gun
- cotton batting
- supplies for the sewing kit (thread, needles, pins, measuring tape, mini scissors, etc.)
Use the flat lid of your mason jar to trace a circle onto the cardboard. Cut out the circle. Use the ring from the lid of the jar to trace a circle onto the wrong side of your fabric; add an approximate half inch all around the circle and cut it out.
Discard the flat portion of the lid. On the inside of the ring portion, glue the edges of the fabric circle to lip of the ring using your glue gun.
Stuff a small amount of batting into the lid. Hot glue the cardboard circle down on the lip of the lid, securing the batting underneath.
Now stuff the jar chock full of pretty sewing goodies and keep it for yourself or give it to your favorite seamstress. These would be amazing as favors at a shower or party, or sweet as a gift to a crafty bride-to-be! xoxo
