How to Make a Mason Jar Pin Cushion

Cut a piece of fabric 1 inch larger than the lid.

how to make sewing kit jar

Place fiberfill on top of wrong side of fabric and bring to back of lid.  Fasten with a small amount of hot glue.  It is important to not get to much glue.  This will keep the lid from fitting on the jar.  Working from opposite sides helps make a smooth top.

Continue around lid until all the fabric is secure.  It is important to work as neatly and smoothly as possible so lid fits when you are finished.

Slip jar ring around the fabric covered lid. Press it in firmly. That’s it! You are done.  Cover inside of the lid with a circle of lightweight card-stock to finish it off.  It is important to keep layers as thin as possible so jar lid fits on the jar.

Fill jar with your favorite notions, stick a few heart pins into the pin cushion and attach the gift tag. A sweet way to let your friend know that they really measure up!
